BEING PRESS STATEMENT ISSSUED BY THE NATIONAL AMIR (PRESIDENT) OF THE COMPANION, MR AHMED ‘TUNDE POPOOLA, FCA ON THE OCCASION OF THE 1433 AH EID-EL ADHA CELEBRATION

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICIENT, THE MERCIFUL

BEING PRESS STATEMENT ISSSUED BY THE NATIONAL AMIR (PRESIDENT) OF THE COMPANION, MR AHMED ‘TUNDE POPOOLA, FCA ON THE OCCASION OF THE 1433 AH EID-EL ADHA CELEBRATION.

THE COMPANION rejoices with Muslims in Nigeria and all over the world on the occasion of the 1433 A.H. Eid-el Adha celebration. We pray Allah to accept our sacrifice and other efforts of Ibadah and reward us abundantly. We call on all Muslim homes and families to be UNITED in the cause of Allah as demonstrated by prophet Ibrahim and his family. They were resolute in obeying the command of Allah and shunning evil.

We also use the opportunity of the Eid to call on all Muslims to celebrate the Eid in moderation and shun extravagance.  We call on all Muslims to continue to pray to Allah for unity, peace and progress in Nigeria while not forgetting our brothers and sisters who are currently on Hajj. We pray Allah to accept their hajj and return them home safely.

We use the opportunity of the Eid to once again commiserate with the victims of flood disaster in various parts of the country and pray Allah to give them succour and the fortitude to bear the loss. The N17.6 billion life line fund provided by the federal government to address the immediate needs of the victims including their rehabilitation is a welcome development in the short term. The Dangote and Agbakoba led National Committee on Flood Relief and Rehabilitation (NCFFRR) with mandate to raise funds to compliment government efforts in tackling the scourge is also welcomed. However, beyond the short term solution proffered above, we call on the government for proper use of the ECOLOGICAL FUND to mitigate such natural disasters in future.

Equally worrisome is the food shortage crisis that may follow the massive flooding that has adversely affected the farming communities and the large scale farmers across the country. This threat is real and must be quickly addressed by the governments at all levels to avert food shortage crisis in the near future.
We again enjoin on Muslims to live peacefully with their neighbours and savour the joy and blessing of the season. We also call on them to ensure that waste generated in the course of the sallah is properly disposed without harming the environment. BARKA DE SALLAH.

God Bless Nigeria.

Signed:
Ahmed ‘Tunde Popoola, FCA
National Amir (President)
