Governor Uzodimma said that this year’s Eid-el-Kabir is peculiar because it is celebrated when the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic of which the nation is not an exception.
While calling on Muslim brothers and sisters to imbibe the spirit of love, peace, kindness and sacrifice fall of which Prophet Muhammad is noted for; Governor Uzodimma urged them to also use the opportunity of the Eid-el-Kabir to pray fervently for the end of the challenge of coronavirus pandemic.
He said: “The time to pray fervently for God’s intervention and mercy upon our country regarding the COVID-19 is now and I call on our Muslim brothers and sisters to make that one of their prayer points.”
While advising the Muslim faithful, particularly those in the state to continue to observe the COVID-19 protocols as they make merry, Governor Uzodimma also urged them to reflect deeply on those who do not have what it takes to celebrate during this period of Eid-el-Kabir and show them love.
Mr. Oguwike Nwachuku, the Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser to the Governor dropped the information in a statement, a copy of which was made available to The Triumph.
