A Nigerian born UK based Development and Investment strategist, Dr Samson Agada Omale, has felicitated with Nigerian Muslims on the occasion of Eid-Al Adha, even as he harps on the need to emulate Prophet Muhammad’s virtue of peace, tolerance and sacrifice.
Statement made available to THE SUMMIT by his media aide, Ojima Okala, prayed for quick end to the security challenges facing the country.
He said, “the strive for a greater Nigeria will remain a mirage without sustainable peace, tolerance and sacrifice.”
He urged Nigerians to be patient and cooperate with governments at all levels in the country, as they strives for the return of permanent peace to all parts of the Nigerian territory.
He assured that the current challenge facing the country is just a phase that will not last, explaining that every society has their peculiar problems.
“Nigeria is not alone in this. Different countries have their different challenges. The difference is the determination to overcome them. As we celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, my appeal to Nigerians is that, it takes time to build sustainable peace, without which no meaningful development can be achieved,” the Nigerian Ambassador-at-large said.
Dr Samson Agada Omale reiterated his readiness to deploy his wealth of knowledge, expertise, experience and connections to contribute his quota to national development.
“As one of the leading Diaspora Nigerians, it is my pleasure to deploy all I have got towards uplifting Nigeria to an enviable height. We have no other country apart from Nigeria, making it work is the collective responsibility of all Nigerians, both old and young; rich or poor; educate or uneducated.”
He reminded the Nigerian youths, especially, Muslims, that Eid-el-kabir is a period of reflection, rededication to the will of Allah and self-assessment, while urging them to celebrate with high sense of responsibility, in order not to jeopardise their future.
The ace investment strategist concluded his appeal with a quote by a great leading light, Robert Schuller, who once said: “Tough time never last but tough people do. “I am confident that with sustained resilience, Nigeria will come out of her current challenges stronger than ever.”
