The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside has called on Nigerians to live in peace and love for one another even as we celebrate the Sallah.
The DG said this divine period should not only be seen as a period for merriment alone but also a time of making peace and extending love to one another.
He also noted that a time like this should be a time of sobber reflection particularly because of the happenings in the country.
According to the NIMASA boss, ”The Sallah celebration is not meant only for wining and dining but a time to reflect on re-dedicating our love for the nation. We have to exhibit values of love, peace and prayer for the country. We should also use the occasion in striving to continue to serve humanity irrespective of tribe, creed or political linings.”
”As our country grapples with various challenges of development, this also an apt period for all of us to pray earnestly to God continue to bless Nigeria as well as guide and guard it as we approach 2019 general election, ” He added.
