The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, House of Representatives candidate for Idah, Ibaji, Igalamela Odolu, Ofu Federal Constituency in Kogi state in the 2023 elections, Hon. Uchola Omale Ojogbane, has felicitated with the Muslim ummah on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir.
In a statement in Idah yesterday, the Reps hopeful urged all Nigerians to rise above personal, group, sectarian and other interests, and to promote harmony and tolerance in dealing with one another at all times.
Ojogbane admonished Muslims to imbibe the lesson of the celebration and make it a duty to sacrifice for others and to always remember those who are less privileged. He added that selfishness, greed and corruption have no place in our lives and in our dealings with one another.
“Eid-ul-Adha offers an opportunity to remember the submission of Prophet Ibrahim Alaihis-Salam to Allah, by which he taught the world the value of sacrifice in relating with one another,” he said.
Uchola Ojogbane advised the Muslim ummah to use the occasion to pray for the country’s security and economic challenges. He charged his constituents to take advantage of the continuous voters registration to obtain their PVC.
“As the country prepares for the 2023 general elections, only those with registered PVC would be able to vote candidates of their choice”, he said.
