Prominent businessman and philanthropist, Alhaji Yusuf Babalola, has felicitated with the Muslim faithfuls as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el Kabir.
In his SALLAH message, the hotelier and real estate guru reminded all Muslim faithful to remember the purpose of the celebration, which amongst other things is to acknowledge the trials and triumph of Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim).
He said the Prophet is remembered and revered across ages and nations for passing a great test of faith. “As we celebrate, I believe that Nigeria can make swift progression on all fronts if we uphold the impeccable virtue of abiding faith as typified by Prophet (Abraham) Ibrahim, through his sacrifice, patience, generosity, and obedience to Allah’s command and constituted authority”, he stated.
In the spirit of the celebration, Alhaji Yusuf Babalola commended President Muhammadu Buhari restoring unity and peace to our dear ruling party and the generality of our people. He also applauded the executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwoolu for his brilliant leadership and administrative style which he has shown in handling of party assignments given to him as well as in the affairs of the people of Lagos State.
Alhaji Yusuf Babalola further urged all Nigerians to always remember our shared heritage and destiny of national greatness and to be guided by the spirit of patriotism and nationalism with firm belief and confidence to surmount all emerging challenges of nation-building.
Concluding his message, Alhaji Yusuf Babalola then wished all Nigerians happy Sallah celebration, even as they stay safe, duly observing the COVID-19 protocols as directed by relevant constituted authorities across the nation.
