It is with great sense of brotherliness and duty that I, the Managing Director, congratulate all staff of the Authority, particular the Muslims among us on this year’s Eid-El-Kabir celebration.
The occasion re-echoes the trial and victory of Prophet (Abraham) Ibrahim by the Almighty God who commanded him to offer his son, Isaac as a burnt sacrifice. The significance of Allah’s command to Abraham was simply a test of his patience, commitment, love, obedience and trust towards Allah’s precepts.
Suffice to say that, Prophet Ibrahim’ s success of the trial bestows on us the Children, the leverage to continually celebrate and reap Allah’s Grace and reward from the occasion.
I, therefore, would like to implore all of us to use the occasion to rededicate our lives to that of service, obedience, trust, patience and commitment to Almighty God and to the work we do.
Let us see ourselves as brothers and sisters and to shun religious bigotry, tribalism, nepotism and all retrogressive virtues that can only draw us back as a people.
On behalf of the management team, I once again felicitate with everyone of you on this very important occasion as you celebrate.
Furthermore, let me remind us once again that the task of repositioning the Authority remains a team work. I urge all hands to be on deck as we carry out this onerous task to fast track the country’s economic growth and industrialisation.
