Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, Chairman, Niger Delta Development Commission, has urged Muslims faithful to embrace the virtues of forgiveness and understanding as they celebrate the end of the Ramadan.
Ndoma-Egba gave the advice in statement on Friday in Abuja, noting that one of the basic components of the Ramadan is to seek God’s mercies on our sins.
According to him, it becomes imperative for us as humans to extend the grace of forgiveness and common understanding to one another as well.
He said: “Being good Muslims requires following the examples of Prophet Muhammed, who lived a life of building common understanding among people and always quick to forgive those that transgressed against him.
“It is important that all hands are on deck and old gaps closed in order to support the current political leadership to emerge victorious in the upcoming 2019 general elections.
“Especially at a time such as now when Nigeria is at the threshold of another new beginning.”
Ndoma-Egba, therefore, congratulated every Muslim for the successful completion of the Ramadan fasting season, reiterating that it was a season of abundant grace from God Almighty for the forgiveness of our sins.
