The Cross River State Director General of Due process and Price intelligence Bureau , Hon.barrister Alphonsus Ogar Eba urged Muslims to use the occasion to practice Prophet Muhammad’s precepts of piety and tolerance.
Eba gave the advice in a message by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Egbara Emmanuel Ikaba, to mark this year’s Eid-el-Maulud (Birthday of Prophet Muhammad).
“On this occasion of Eid-il-Kabir, the season of joy, happiness and great excitement, I extend to you my warmest regards and good wishes of a joyous celebration”.
He also urged the Muslims to use the occasion to practice Prophet Muhammad’s precepts of piety, tolerance, justice and peaceful co-existence within our communities in the collective effort to overcome the current national challenges.
“With the current economic hardship in the country, there is no better time in applying the teachings of the holy Prophet on how to live a life of simplicity, ‘’he said.
He also called on them to ‘’lend helping hand to the needy in our midst.”
The season, as we all know, is symbolic of the Islamic injunction of sacrificial giving and total submission to The Almighty Allah by whose grace we have survived to celebrate yet another Eid-il-Kabir in spite of all the tribulations that have besieged the world around us in the last one year.
It is, therefore, a time to spare a thought about our worldly pursuits and ambitions in relation to our societal values bearing in mind that we are only human and life is all vanity.
As we celebrate today, my brothers and sisters in Islam, let us reflect on those societal values that remind us of our common humanity.
Let us pray and ask The Almighty Allah to restore to us those values that remind us that we must love our neighbours as ourselves and that our real values are not reflected in what we have but how much we have touched the lives of those around us, especially those put under our care.
As a Government that is resolved to serve you, the Govenor Ayade led government will continue to create an enabling environment for business and commerce to thrive bearing in mind that it is only in a peaceful and secure environment that prosperity can be achieved.
“I urge you, therefore, to extend a hand of cooperation to the Government and to one another so that together we can achieve our collective dream of an industrialized state”.
Once again, I wish you a joyous and hitch free celebration.
