Member representing Burutu Federal Constituency, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Julius Pondi has celebrated with Muslim faithfuls across the nation on their Eid-El-Kabir celebration.
The Federal Lawmaker had enjoined Nigerians to emulate Prophet Ibrahim (ASW) and His Son Prophet Ismail (ASW).
This was contained in a statement he personally signed and issued to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.
The statement reads in full below:
RT. Hon Julius Pondi Celebrates with Muslim faithfuls on EID-EL-KABIR; Enjoin Nigerians to Emulate Prophet Ibrahim (ASW) and His Son Prophet Ismail (ASW).
I wish to celebrate with the Muslim community in Burutu council area and indeed all Muslim faithful in the country on this year EID-EL-KABIR celebration.
Eid-El-Kabir is a time for all of us to imbibe the fear of Allah and be willing to make sacrifices as exemplified by the character of Prophet Ibrahim (ASW) and his son Prophet Ismail (ASW). The character of Prophet Ibrahim and his son teaches us that they had faith in God and were willing to make great sacrifices as requested by Almighty Allah. When we have the fear of God, we will be able to love one and be our brother’s keepers.
I, therefore, called on all Nigerians to be law-abiding, love one another and be willing to make needed sacrifices that will promote the growth, peace and unity of our great country. May the peace and blessings of Allah be with us all as we celebrate Sallah.
RT. Hon. Julius Pondi
Member Federal House of Representatives
Burutu Federal Constituency.
