The Lagos Assembly Speaker gave this advice during his Eid-l-Kabir message made available to journalists on Sunday, September 11, 2016.

In the press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Razak, Rt. Hon. Obasa stated that at this period of Nigeria’s political development, the citizens need to come together, tolerate one another and show understanding for each other’s feeling to build a great and developed nation.

According to the Speaker, Nigerians need the spirit of perseverance, tolerance and understanding displayed by the family of Prophet Ibrahim when the prophet decided to sacrifice his only son to Almighty Allah as a fulfilment of a promise he made earlier while seeking the face of Allah for a child.

The Lagos Assembly Speaker while thanking Nigerians for their support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at state and central levels, advised the citizens not to relent in their support for the government.

“Yes, we are in economic recession but the present administration at the centre has shown capacity to take us out of this situation. But it is obvious that the government cannot do it alone hence it is all our duty to contribute our quota positively to efforts towards developing this country,” he said.

Rt. Hon. Obasa felictated with Nigerians especially Muslims on the celebration of the Eid-l-Kabir festival praying that God will always, “enrich our lives and return our country to the glory days”.

He advised that while celebrating the Sallah, “we should be moderate in our celebrations and avoid actions or utterances that can lead to violence or any event that can disrupt the peace of the state and the country”.
