Eid-al-Adha 2020: Gwani's Statement
Today marks the beginning of Eid al-Adha, one of the most sacred festivals in the Muslim calendar. This celebration marks the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the world only a handful observed the annual exercise attended by millions.
Muslims in Plateau, Nigeria and around the world will come together with family and friends to pray, share a meal, and exchange gifts and blessings. Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, is a time of forgiveness, compassion and generosity toward those most in need. Plateaunians from across the nation and from all walks of life can take inspiration from these shared values that unite us.
Eid al-Adha is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about the Muslim community’s significant contributions to enriching the social, economic, political and cultural fabric of our society. We would like to reiterate our deep gratitude to Plateau people in general for all they have done to make the Plateau we know today a welcoming, inclusive, prosperous and diverse place that we all happily call home.
Moreso, I am wishing that Eid al-Adha may bring relief to our hearts, happiness to our homes and brightness to our dear state and country, I, once again, offer you my love and respect.
As a concerned son of the soil , I extend my best wishes to all Plateaunians observing Eid al-Adha. Remember, as you bask in the euphoria of Eid do adhere to all Covid-19 safety measures during and after the celebration.
