Share

The Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu has urged Nigerians particularly the Muslim Umma to remain true to their civic responsibilities and maintain support for government towards fulfilling its obligations.

He also urged them to pray for the peace of the country as well as imbibe the virtues of selflessness, patriotism, sacrifice and good neighbourliness towards all.

Issa-Onilu, who gave the charge in an Eid-el Fitri felicitation message to Muslim faithful at the end of the month of Ramadan, noted that the lessons of the holy month, if imbibed, will ensure peaceful coexistence, patriotism and national development in Nigeria.

He said Eid-el Fitr is an opportunity to demonstrate and entrench the virtues of patience, self-control, and sobriety taught by Ramadan, pointing out that “Ramadan is a month-long religious obligation with far longer social and national benefits”.

The NOA DG also said that Nigerians, more than ever before, need to show patriotism, love and affection toward others as Eid-el Fitr demands, adding that such would avert anarchy and guarantee sustainable development in the country.

While wishing the Muslim umma a rewarding Eid-el Fitri, Issa-Onilu urged them to remain true to their civic responsibilities and maintain support for government towards fulfilling its obligations.
