Insecurity & Corruption Will Flee, If We Practice The Dictates Of Our Religion – Varsity Chancellor
By Our Reporter
The Chancellor of Gregory University, Uturu Abia State, Prof. Gregory Ibe has said that insecurity and corruption that have bedeviled the nation will be a thing of the past, if Nigerians genuinely practice the dictates of their religion.
Prof. Ibe made this known to newsmen in Abia State, even as Muslims celebrates the Eid – el Kabir festival, to mark the successful end of one month dawn to sunset fasting, in the holy month of Ramadan.
Prof Gregory Ibe maintained that if Muslim faithfuls both in Nigeria and around the world uphold and practice and teachings of the Holy Koran, peace and tranquility will reign.
The GUU Chancellor who enjoined Muslim faithful to sustain the good virtues that made Prophet Mohammed great, charged them to use the opportunity offered by the celebration to “offer prayers for peace, unity, prosperity and an end to the insecurities that have tended to destroy our beloved Nigeria”.
He encouraged Muslims to put to good use the lessons learned during the Ramadan period, in order to foster love and unity within the society, by sharing with the less privileged persons as examplified by holy Prophet Mohammed.
According to Prof. Ibe the celebration is an opportunity for “our Muslim brothers and sisters to deepen their relationship with Allah, depicted by life of sacrifice, charity and love for one another”.
He urged all Muslims resident in Abia state particularly and their brethren across Nigeria, to continue to sustain these values and thereby use them as building blocks for the attainment of a peaceful Nigerian nation where everyone will be happy to actualise their dreams.
