The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria (MMWG) has urged individuals to change their bad ways and resolve to support the change-mantra of the new administration to revive the nation’s economy and redeem the nation from backwardness. MMWG in a message by its National Coordinator, Alhaji Abdullahi Ibrahim, to congratulate Muslims on the occasion of this Eid-el Kabir, says the economic recession being faced in the country is the resultant effect of greed, looting of the treasury and bad governance which has caused untold hardship on the people of Nigeria.
The group appeals to religious leaders to use the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, to re-examine their roles in the Nigerian Society and resolve to lead by good example. While condemning acts of religious intolerance, discrimination, intimidation and antagonism by some religious leaders, the group urges them to conduct themselves in a manner that will not only benefit religious bodies but the entire Nigerians.
