Anambra State-born billionaire, Prince Arthur Eze, has called on Moslems to use the Eide-el-Kabir celebration to meditate on the need to shun divisive tendencies.
He stressed that Nigeria is better off as a big entity than a divided nation.
While commending the leadership and statesmanship of President Muhammadu Buhari, the oil mogul expressed optimism that “everything threatening our nationhood would bow under God's intervention”.
Eze in a press release by his media adviser, Mr. Oliver Okpala, called on Nigerians to join hands to ensure that the country’s unity was maintained.
“Eze felicitated with Muslims in Nigeria on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, urging them to continue their prayers and support for the President Buhari-led administration to overcome the current challenges confronting the nation.
“He urged Nigerians to use the season to recommit themselves to the ideals of national unity, peaceful coexistence and togetherness, while stressing that the cooperate existence of the Nigeria which has received serious bashing in recent times, is a pivot to a great and prosperous nation,” the statement read.
The business mogul enjoined Nigerians of all faiths to shun violence, ethnicity and hate, noting that it is only a peaceful atmosphere that can ensure development and progress.
He added: “Nigeria Muslims should use this solemn period of Sallah to present Nigeria’s challenges to Almighty Allah for his intervention for us to overcome insecurity and the economic issues that have continued to affect the whole world due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
