On the special occasion of Sallah celebration, the former governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Kogi State, Barr. Natasha Hadiza Akpoti while felicitating with Muslims, sent message to Nigerian leaders across all tiers of authority to ensure they fulfil the trust entrusted with them by the people, citing the words of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh).
“I use this medium to urge Muslim and non-muslim leaders to practice the essence of religion by fulfilling trust and do not cheat the poor but imbibing humanity and selflessness into daily leadership activities.
“Let them reflect on the words of Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) in at Tirmidhi 1264 where he says ‘fulfil the trust for the one who entrusted you and do not cheat the one who cheated you’.
“They must also stop all manner of segregation that promotes inequality amongst ethnic groups, religion, and gender.
“They must remember that Allah is all-knowing but will not hesitate to punish offenders especially those who take advantage of the poor and vulnerable,” Akpoti said.
