Kebbi – The Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ), Kebbi State Council, has felicitated the Muslim Ummah, Kebbi State Governor Senator Atiku Bagudu, the Union members, and the entire people of the State on this year’s occasion of Eid-el-Kabir.

In a statement issued to newsmen on Saturday, signed by the Council’s Secretary, Comrade Ahmed Idris on behalf of the Union urged Muslims to spread the act of kindness, especially towards the weak and less privileged irrespective of ethnicity and religious background.

“We equally expressed our profound gratitude to the Kebbi State Governor Senator Atiku Bagudu Abubakar for supporting the journalists in the state most especially this year’s Sallah Festival.

“Sir you have shown us love and a good leader and our prayer for you is May Almighty Alhah protect you in the hands of your enemies, known and unknown, open and secret, and give more wisdom in piloting the affairs of the state,” he said.

Comrade Idris noted that this period of the Eid celebration was a clarion call to imbibe the lessons of the season such as sacrifice, selfless service to Allah and humanity as well as a sincere commitment to righteous conduct in both private and public life.

“You see the Eid-el-Kabir teaches us to be patient and prayerful and never lose hope in life.

“Prophet Abraham did not only pray for a righteous son, but he was also persistent in the prayer and had absolute trust and faith in Allah even at over eighty years of age.

“We must not relent in our prayer for survival and survival from whatever challenge we face as individual or state,” he added.

While wishing the Muslim Ummah a fun-filled Sallah celebration, the Union also commended members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm for their resilience in the practice of responsible journalism urging them to be steadfast despite the harsh economic challenges in the state.

He then urged journalists to remain prayerful and continue to contribute, selflessly, to their quota in tackling societal problems.

The statement also urged the Muslim faithful to extend the spiritual benefits of Eid-el-Kabir, which are sacrifice, love, peace, and justice to their daily living and through this, contribute to the development of not only the NUJ but the state at large.
