Nigeria Muslims will be celebrating their eid El Kabir tomorrow as the former governor of Lagos State celebrates with them.

The former governor tweets about it and the tweets says “I join with Nigerian Muslims and Muslims all over the world in observance of Eid-el-Kabir.

This year’s observance comes at a unique moment in history where the normal activities of society have been upset and altered by the threat of deadly sickness.

This sickness has touched Muslim, Christian as well as those who profess no religion at all. It has descended on both the high and the not-so-high.

We have lost friends and loved ones. Too many people have died and far too many good people are still suffering because of the economic consequences of this scourge.

Although prospective pilgrims from Nigeria and other parts of the world cannot physically participate in this year’s Hajj.

we must still walk in the spirit of the Hajj and conduct ourselves according to the compassionate ways of Almighty Allah.

It is in this spirit that I ask all Nigerian Muslims to observe this Eid with caution and utmost respect. As Nigeria Muslims we are taught to respect the law.

Thus, as we celebrate, we must observe all public health measures recommended by the authorities such as wearing facemasks and avoiding large gatherings.

We do this not for ourselves but for the benefit of others.

Him how you may help a relative, a family member or even a stranger who may be in greater need than you are.

We must pray that Almighty Allah lend wisdom and guidance to President Buhari and all those in government that they may continue to work to move our nation forward.

I pray for a better future, one free of all forms of pestilence and ills.

We get there if we listen to Almighty Allah and if we love one another as members of the same national family. To all Muslims and other fellow Nigerians, I say Eid Mubarak.

The message signed and forwarded to DAILY POST by his Media Aide, Tunde Rahman reads partly: “It is in this spirit that I ask all Nigerian Muslims to observe this Eid with caution and utmost respect.
