Ajigi in his Sallah message released in Lokoja, urged Muslims to preach peace and imbibe the virtues of Prophet Mohammed whose sacrificial and obedient life is the reason for the celebration. He also called on Muslims not to be carried away by only the pageantry of the Sallah celebration, but to use the occasion for sober reflection and extend gestures and hands of support to the needy in the society as well as to pray against the current security and economic situation of the country. [b]"Eid- El -Kabir is a time of love and goodwill. It gives us a message to love all and hate none. We have every reason to thank God for his mercy over humanity. Despite the present situation of our country we must be hopeful and prayerful at all times. The fact that we are still alive, gives room for Thanksgiving, "I pray that the precarious situation of the country will be handled by almighty Allah through his grace and wisdom. We have no other country to call our own. On behalf of my humble self and my family I wish all concerned in this festive period, a wonderful outing, peace, greatness and above it all fear of God." he added.
