Muslim faithfuls have been admonished to imbibe the lessons of Ramadan which are highly spiritual and guidance to human existence.
The Nigeria Pillar of Sports, Chief Donatus Agu Ejidike, JP gave this admonition in his message to the Muslim faithfuls in Lagos as he described the holy month as a period of repentance , restitution and dedication to holiness.
Chief Ejidike noted that Nigeria is morally decayed and the citizens are involved in corruption practices, banditry , kidnapping and social vices which have eaten deep into the fabrics of the nation; hence the people of the country must imbibe the lessons of Ramanda if the nation must progress.
“Islam is peace; and, the Ramadan period is known as the holy month when all social vices and immoral behaviours are condemned and discouraged. It is therefore, highly imperative that we eschew all characters that are negatively affecting the development of the country.. If only we sustain the moral lessons of Ramadan, Nigeria will be a better place for living”, sounded Ejidike.
Ejidike prayed further: “May this special day bring peace, happiness and prosperity to everyone. May Allah flood our lives with happiness and peace of mind on this occasion of Eid Mubarak! May Allah accept your good deeds, forgive your transgressions and ease the suffering of all people around the globe.”
The sports philanthropist called for more prayers at this period of the nation building as he emphasized spiritual and holy behavior as stated in the Holy books
He enjoined the Muslims to use this period of celebration of Eid-fitr to seek the face of Allah for invention on the political transition as the political clouds gather.
