The lawmaker also acknowledged the significant contributions Muslims have made to Nigeria’s development, growth, peace and prosperity of Nigeria.

The statement read, “As we celebrate another Eid al-Adha, I want to call on all Nigerians to embrace the spirit of sacrifice and service, working together towards a brighter future for our nation.

“Equally, I like to encourage individuals to draw inspiration from Prophet Ibrahim’s remarkable story, making personal sacrifices for the betterment of our communities, society, constituency, state and country.

“It is my prayer that this celebration brings joy, peace, prosperity, and unity to all, and serves as a catalyst for positive change and growth in the years ahead.
