Senator Abdulfatai Buhari who represents Oyo North Senatorisl District has tasked wealthy Nigerians as Muslims around the world celebrate Eid-el-Kabir.
In a statement issued by his media office, the senator, while congratulating Muslims, said the festive period should be used to promote love and harmony by extending hands of charity to the underprivileged.
He urged Nigerians to intensify prayer for peace and progress of the nation.
While urging Nigerians to cultivate the habit of peaceful coexistence amongst all religious adherents in the country, Senator Buhari who is the chairman, Senate Committee on Land Transport, said appealed to Nigerians to use this period to make sacrifices of tolerance for peace to reign in the country saying “the period is key to all and we must take advantage of it to supplant peace permanently for growth and development in all sectors.”
He maintained further that “we have no alternative to peace as conflict has never helped any society, tolerance holds the answer and we all must imbibe that as we celebrate this period of love.”
He then urged his constituents and people of Oyo State to keep faith with the government and support leaders with prayers.
