The Chairman of the Senate Appropriation Committee, Senator Barau Jibrin has felicitated Muslims across the country.
Senator Jibrin who particularly rejoiced with Muslims in his Senatorial District, of Kano North, urged them to imbibe the spirit of unity and tolerance for peaceful coexistence.
He urged his constituents to continue to rededicate themselves to the onerous task of nation-building while noting that the essence of the Eid-el-Kabir festival, which symbolizes the voluntary obedience of Prophet Ibrahim (ASW) to the commands of Allah and the demonstration of his faith in his maker must be emulated by all.
This was contained in a statement issued by his media office in Kano, on Saturday.
