As Muslims all over the world celebrate the Eid El Kabir tomorrow, Friday, September 1, 2017, the Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has congratulated all Muslim faithful in the State and enjoined them to use the occasion to pray for the peace and progress of the State and more significantly, continue to support the State Governor, Chief Barr. Nyesom Wike.
Obuah in a statement said a strict adherence to the teaching of Islam to love one another, brotherliness, tolerance and peaceful coexistence will help create a peaceful environment necessary for Governor Nyesom Wike to achieve the progressive agenda of the State.
He said Muslims and the entire people in the State have every reason to be thankful to God for this year’sEid El Kabir because of God’s abundant goodness and mercies to the State.
Bro. Obuah said a retrospect into the past months shows that God has been tremendously kind to Rivers people through the instrumentality of the amiable Governor of the State, Chief (Barr) Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
The PDP Chairman urged Muslims to shun social vices as contained in the Koran as such are not only detrimental to the individual’s wellbeing, but harmful to the fabric of the society in various ways that may not be immediately seen.
Bro. Obuah expressed confidence that the present downturn in the economy is a passing phase that will soon be over, as according to him, the Wike administration has potent economic policies that would make this possible.
While stressing that Muslims in the State have a role to play in the implementation of government policies and programmes, the State PDP boss assured that the Wike administration was very passionate in giving the dividends of democracy to all residents in the State.
