The Nigerian Associations of Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agricultures (NACCIMA) rejoices with the Nigerian Muslims on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, a celebration that brings Ramadan to a close. Urging them to continue restraining themselves from worldly desires as commanded by the Qur’an.
According the National President of NACCIMA, Hajiya Saratu Iya Aliyu, “We rejoice with the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and all Nigerian Muslims as they celebrate and pray that God will answer all their prayers offered while the holy month lasts. It is our prayer that the celebration will be free of any terror or suicide bomber’s attack.”
Aliyu admonished them to continue restraining themselves from pleasurable and all kinds of ungodly activities after Ramadan having purified their souls with fasting. Instead, they should continue promoting peace, unity and love of the country.
On behalf of the Chamber, we rejoice with them and pray that God will answer all their prayers and help our leaders to get it right in their search for solutions to all problems ravaging the country.
She said, “As we begin another journey as a nation, we call on all elected leaders, at all levels, to embrace fairness, equity and justice in all their appointments and governance. The time has come when our leaders should stop paying lip service to the peace, unity and stability of Nigeria. They should stop discrimination against fellow Nigerians because of their political, ethnic and religious differences. We all have roles to play in the building of a virile nation with stable polity and economic buoyancy.”
She added that the NACCIMA wishes you a peaceful Ramada Celebration.
