President and Founder, Enemona Humanitarian Foundation, Amb. Gabriel Onoja, has charged Muslim Ummah to allow humanity and patriotism guide their conduct as they celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir celebration across the country.

Onoja who gave the charge in his Sallah message made available to newsmen in Lokoja said the need to show humanity had become necessary in view of the harsh economic realities of the time.

The Humanitarian said the Eid-el-Kabir festival portrayed the Holy Prophet’s show of obedience and sacrifice.

He urged Nigerians to share whatever little food or victuals or materials with the less privileged to assuage the effects of the economic downturn on the people.

The philanthropist urged Muslims to always be content with what Allah has provided for them, shun greed and any act that may negatively affect the essence of the celebration.

Onoja commended Kogi State Government for the improved security situation in the state, and called on residents, especially those celebrating, to be security conscious, vigilant and celebrate responsibly.

He charged youths to desist from social vices, and not to bask in the euphoria of the celebration to engage in drug related crimes that may have negative multiplier effects on them.
