EDO: Shaibu hosts Muslims on Eid-el-Kabir

…says Nigeria has never had it so bad.

ACTING Governor, Rt Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu today hosted Muslim faithfuls in the state in the spirit of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration. While receiving the Muslims at the Government House, Benin, said, “Only in Edo State Philip will cook and celebrate Sallah with Shaibu and Shaibu will in return cook and celebrate Philip during Christmas”.

The Acting Governor charged the Christians and Muslims to co-exist peacefully, noting that, “Violence has no religion, ethnicity or morality, if anything, it reflects a betrayal of our basic humanity, for in violence we forget who we are. What surrounds us is beyond comprehension and puts all of us to shame. For people of faith and principles, this is a time for deep reflection”.

He went on to say that “We must never forget that life has not always been like this and we have never had it so bad in the history of this country in terms of security challenges.
