Sallah: Accommodate Your Neighbours, APC Tells Nigerians.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Nigerians to 'shun the disruptive and divisive utterances and actions emanating from some unpatriotic quarters lately.'

In its Eid Kabir message to Nigerians made available to newsmen by its national publicity secretary, Isa Onilu, the APC admonished Nigerians to embrace the country's diversity and harness it for good.

Onilu said to exhibit the pan-Nigerian spirit, 'we must see every Nigerian as a brother.'

The statement read in part: 'The All Progressives Congress (APC) celebrates with Muslim faithful on the commemoration of Eid ul-Adha.

'We urge all to imbibe the lessons of the important Islamic festival which exemplifies sacrifice and fulfilment of a promise as demonstrated by Prophet Ibrahim (RTA).

As we celebrate the Sallah feast with family, friends and loved ones, Muslim faithful and indeed all Nigerians are implored to show love to neighbours and cater for the less privileged around us.

In our national life, Eid ul-Adha is a reminder for us to make our individual and collective sacrifices for the well-being, unity, peace and development of our dear country, Nigeria.

'We must, therefore, shun the disruptive and divisive utterances and actions emanating from some unpatriotic quarters lately.

'In our private capacity, official duties, wherever we find ourselves, we must all exhibit the pan-Nigerian spirit. We should embrace our country's diversity and harness it for good. We must see every Nigerian as a brother. We should take advantage of his strength, help him with his weakness. That is the only way we can grow as a country.'
