The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, has felicitated with the Muslim faithful in Nigeria on the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
In a message on Saturday, Obi said the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations reminded all Nigerians of the need to sincerely love one another and pursue lasting peace and unity.
He futher encouraged them to continue to preach peace and unity in the country, as critical requirements for national growth and development.
“We are at a very dark moment in our nation’s history, where it seems that every noble ideal that makes us a nation is collapsing before our eyes.
"Insecurity in the country has become unbearable while our economy continues to struggle under the weight of bad governance and financial mismanagement of our leaders. With prayers and hardwork, we shall overcome,” Obi stated.
“We have no other nation but Nigeria, and we must not let it collapse.
"Let us now break the barriers of religion that divide us and unite to take back our nation for progress and development."
