Benue Speaker tasks Muslims on sacrifice

Benue Speaker tasks Muslims on sacrifice

The Speaker, Benue State House of As­sembly, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange, has enjoined the Muslim commu­nity in the state to re­solve to make various sacrifices for the de­velopment of the State and Country as they mark the holy feast of Eid-el-Kabir.
He said sacrifices could be in the form of praying for the state and the country, em­bracing the new ori­entation campaign of the nation and exer­cising patience as the government explores necessary options to get the country out of the present economic downturn.
Ikyange stated this in a goodwill message to the Muslim Ummar as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, noting that these sac­rifices are panacea for the corporate exis­tence of the state and country.
The Speaker, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Bem Abunde, charged them to em­ulate the sacrificial life style of the Holy Prophet Ibrahim by doing the will of God always and caring for the less privileged in the society as exempli­fied by the Prophet.
Ikyange, on behalf of the Principal officers, members and staff of the Assembly, wished the Muslim commu­nity a peaceful and happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
