As Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-l-Kabir, a governorship aspirant and professor of political science, Adeolu Akande has advised them to remember the needy and be modest in whatever they do.
In a statement issued to felicitate with Muslims, Akande, who is also the director at the Centre for Presidential Studies at the Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State, explained that there is love in sharing, adding that the society can only be better if we are concerned about our neighbour.
The statement reads: “As we enjoy this season, we should show love to the less privileged by assisting and sharing whatever with the needy. Let us remember the story of how the rams to be slaughtered are to be distributed; the meats are not meant to be kept but to be shared, to the needy. Apart from that, let us show love to our neighbour; it is rewarding.
“Also, let us remember to pray for our country and our leaders. It is not time to celebrate yet; let us pray continuously, especially as the 2019 general elections draw near,” he said.
He also cautioned road users to adhere strictly to road safety rules, pray God to grant everybody safe trips.
