The Vice Chairman, House of Representatives committee on science and technology, Hon. Musiliudeen Olaide Akinremi has congratulated Muslim brothers, sisters and all the people of Ibadan North federal constituency on this year’s Eid-el-kabir celebration.
Akinremi popularly called Jagaban in a Sallah message to the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji; all the leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), council of Imams, Alfas, Mogajis, chiefs, market men and women, students and artisans in Ibadan North, prayed Allah to grant everyone the grace to celebrate many more years in good health and abundant wealth.
He tasked all to remember those who could not celebrate (as they would have loved to) for one reason or the other, in their prayers.
Akinremi Jagaban said “that this year’s sallah coincided with the Church service of our Christian counterparts is a confirmation that God wants all to coexist in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.”
The Ibadan North federal lawmaker therefore admonished all to be their brother’s keeper and celebrate with moderation.
He recalled the reason for the celebration, and tasked all not to lose hope.
According to Akinremi Jagaban, “we must not lose hope. If Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) could receive a ram to replace his son at the last minute, there must be light at the end of the tunnel for Nigeria. Let us keep the fire of hope burning.”
He enjoined everyone to remember President Muhammadu Buhari, and indeed all leaders at the federal and state levels in their prayers for God to touch their hearts to do good for the citizens.
Akinremi reassured the people of his constituency of his commitment to strive hard to deliver on all his electioneering promises.
He therefore solicited for their prayers at all times.
