The Human Capital Providers Association of Nigeria, HuCaPAN, has greeted its members and Muslim Ummah across the globe on the occasion of the Eid-El-Kabir celebration.
The Association urged them to live by the message of the occasion which is to at all times submit to the will of the Almighty Allah.
In a statement issued by the President of the Association, Dr. Femi Ogunlowo in Lagos, on Friday, and made available to newsmen, he said that the Eid-El-Kabir celebration “reminds us of Allah’s unfailing love and sacrifice”.
“We felicitate our members and Muslim faithful on this year’s celebration of Eid-El-Kabir. It has pleased the Almighty Allah to protect us to witness the occasion despite the challenges confronting us as a people. We thank Allah for this rare privilege”.
Ogunlowo urged Muslims to use the occasion to seek the face of Allah for the nation and the industry stressing that the industry can only thrive if the nation succeeds.
“I urge Muslim faithful to use this occasion to pray for our nation and our industry.
“The economy is in dire strait amid deteriorating security. Our industry is not immune from the effect of these challenges. Therefore, as we plan strategically, we must also pray for a better nation.
“I implore you to remember the poor and the needy in your neighborhood. Let us extend the generosity of Allah over our lives to them. The season is a period of reflection and giving. Let us not fail in fulfilling this injunction.” He said.
Ogunlowo implored members to be security conscious during the celebration saying that enemies of the state usually take advantage of the vulnerability of the season to strike. He prayed that “Almighty Allah shall accept our supplications and sacrifices.”
