A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Saliu Mustapha, has urged Nigerians to rise above personal and sectarian interests by promoting harmonious relationship to sustain the nation’s unity
In a statement issued in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital by his media aide on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, Mallam Mustapha asked Nigerians to exhibit love, compassion and be tolerant of one another at all time.
The former APC gubernatorial aspirant in the State, who felicitated with Muslim faithful on the celebration of the festivities, charged them to emulate the virtues of sacrifice, piety, and submissiveness, which Prophet Ibrahim exemplified.
He stressed the need for all Nigerians irrespective of their political and religious leanings to promote peaceful coexistence with a view to ensuring economic growth and development of the country.
Mallam Mustapha also called on wealthy individuals to support the less privileged in the society to alleviate their sufferings.
