Hon. Olajide Olatubosun says most of the challenges facing the country are solvable if Nigerians will imbibe the teachings of their faiths and apply them in their day-to-day dealings with one another.
Olatunbosun, who representing Atisbo/Saki West/Saki East Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives stated this in a message to the people to mark Eid-el-Kabir (Sallah).
The message personally signed by the lawmaker was made available to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
“Challenges ranging from insecurity including banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, corruption and others will have no place in our country if only we imbibe the tenets of our religion and have the fear of God.
“I am of the view that if we imbibe the noble virtues of our faiths by establishing the connectivity between religious teachings and practice, Nigeria will be a better place for us all.
“We can create the greatest impact by putting into practice the noble teachings of our religion.
“In whatever we do in life, we must put the fear of God in our daily activities in order to make our society better,” he said.
Olatunbosun felicitated with Muslim brothers and sisters in his constituency and Nigeria in general for the peaceful celebration of Sallah in spite the ravaging Coronavirus (COVID-19)
He commended Nigerians for abiding by the protocols set by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19.
“It is my utmost believe that these guidelines and their accompanying inconveniences are not meant to circumvent our freedom of worship in any way.
“The peaceful celebration of this year’s Sallah without having to gather in large numbers in specific locations (Eid Grounds) across the country underscores the willingness of our brothers in Islam to sacrifice for the well being of not only themselves but of the generality of Nigerians.
“While wishing Muslims a happy celebration, I urge worshipers not to forget the symbolic significance of the sacrifices of Sallah,” Olatunbosun said.
