Sallah: Nigerians Need To Move Closer To God Than Ever ― Obasa
Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Mudashiru Obasa has called on Nigerians to move closer to God now than ever saying this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, is unique due to the effect of coronavirus pandemic ravaging the economy of the world.
According to him, “The world should see its present predicament as a call to get closer to God through humility, respect and love for neighbours.”
Obasa, however, congratulated Muslims who are alive to witness the celebration and urged them to remain conscious that “we all exist not by our strengths but by God’s grace.
“As we mark this celebration, let us remember our brothers and sisters in need, let us remember the true meaning of love for one another and above all, we must all draw closer to God, who knows the end from the beginning and whose grace we constantly seek”, he said.
Obasa, who commended the state and federal governments over the way they have handled the pandemic, pleaded with citizens to continue to adhere to medical instructions, including the use of face masks, sanitizers and washing of hands at required times. “Adherence to instructions is one of the best ways we can collectively return our society to normalcy,” he added.
