In his message, Kida advised that while celebrating this moment, Muslim faithfuls and indeed, all Nigerians should not forget to imbibe the lessons that gave birth to the celebration of this day.

He said, “I am happy to join all Muslim faithfuls in celebrating this day. It is a very momentous and important moment in the lives of all Muslim faithfuls.

“While celebrating, however, I want to advise that we embrace peace and unity. Let’s merry, but let’s not forget the lessons of this historic moment.
