Eid El Fitri: Nwabunike Charges Believers To Sustain Piety, Love Exhibited During Fasting

Believers across the two major religions have been enjoined to sustain the good works practised during the fasting period after the Eid El Fitri celebration.

Noting that the Christian lent period coincided with many days of the Ramadan month, the National President, Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA), Hon. (Chief) Tony Nwabunike, advised that “If we shun schisms, showed more love and did works of charity during Ramadan, we can continue in that path forever as a way of re-creating a more peaceful and prosperous Nigeria.”

Nwabunike pointed out that Muslims have gone through a period of self denial, persistently praying and always giving alms to the needy in line with the dictates of their faith.

These great virtues, according to him, rub on national life, teach us piety, love, tolerance and selflessness associated with the teachings of the revered Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

The ANLCA President urged the secular audience in the maritime, aviation and total logistics sectors, including politicians, and public servants superintending over the country, who are adherents of the faiths to lead Nigeria with the fear of God.

“Obedience to rules governing our operations is the key to unlock the many untapped but identified channels of successes.

“Anytime I hear the word compliance as a parlance in our trade area used in addressing private sector players, I feel a sense of narrow minded expression by the users of such mode of communication.

Government agencies owe Nigeria and Nigerians the duty to be compliant by discharging their duties without fear or favour and totally avoiding compromise of their positions for personal gains.

“A holistic compliance will make technology work for us and present us truly as nation builders who obey the teachings of our religious leanings.

“Specifically for our Muslim brethren, Eid El Fitri should not be seen as the end of being nice until the next Ramadan comes. It should not be a leeway to return to deviance and disobedience.

We all have roles in building our country and the trying times we have found ourselves place enormous responsibilities on our shoulders,” he stated.
