Must read

A chieftain of New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has enjoined political office holders among whom are President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, state governors and members of the National Assembly to remember their promises during campaigns.

The NNPP chieftain made this declaration via statement to felicitate with Muslims over this year’s Eld Adhha festival.

He called on political office holders to embrace the principle of sacrifices in the handling of the affairs of the country.

He also urged them to always remember and fulfill whatever promises they made to the electorate during the electioneering campaigns.

Oguntoyinbo in the statement made available to journalists on Sunday in Ibadan, urged political leaders to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to Allah’s command and fulfilment of promise made to Allah.

He used the opportunity to urge the leaders to make necessary sacrifice to grow the nation and bring prosperity to the people of Nigeria.

He urged the leaders to always fear God in whatever they are doing.

“I rejoice with Muslim faithful across the country on this occasion of Eid el Kabir. I wish them a successful celebration devoid of crisis and rancour. Despite the current harsh economy, I urged our Muslim brothers and sisters to rejoice for the gift of life. When we are alive, there is hope of a better tomorrow. We should particularly be grateful to Almighty Allah for the peace we are currently enjoying in our nation.

“Our political leaders should also learn from the sacrifice made by Ibrahim to surrender his only son for sacrifice promised to Allah until Allah saw his clean mind and replaced him with a ram for sacrifice. No sacrifice is too much to ensure peaceful and prosperity of Nigerians.

“When leaders make the necessary sacrifice, God will intervene and bring prosperity on our land. Political Leaders must remember the promises made during the electioneering campaigns and fulfill the promises to the electorate who based on these promises defied rain and hot sunshine to vote them to power.

“Our leaders should fear and respect Almighty God and because of this they should work day and night to ensure the masses are not suffering any untold hardship”.
