Makarfi said: “God in His infinite mercies and immeasurable powers has again afforded us the Opportunity to celebrate yet another Eid-el-Kabir.

“We should also use the occasion to rededicate ourselves to His service by striving to continue to serve humanity irrespective of tribe, creed or political leanings.

“God in His infinite wisdom and mercy has created us the way He has, with all our diversities, and has decreed that we exist in this highly endowed nation as each other’s keeper.
