Nigerians, especially Muslims, have been charged join President Muhhammadu Buhari in the war against corruption in the country as well as emulate the sacrifice, selflessness and sincerity exhibited by Prophet Ibrahim in the spirit of Eid-el-Kabir.

The call was made by Olatunbosun Oyintiloye in his Sallah message to the Muslim community in Obokun, Osun State.

The lawmaker disclosed that Nigeria, at this time, needs loyalty from its citizens, as corruption has done a lot of harm to the people, hence the need for everyone to renew their commitment towards a better country.

According to him, contentment is a virtue respected and propagated by every religion, race and creed whereas covetousness and greed are generally regarded as vices, which are despised by everyone.

Oyintiloye said: “Our country today is confronted with a bug called corruption. It has infested our world and eaten deep like a cankerworm into the fabric of our society.

“It becomes worrisome that custodians of the commonwealth, those in position of authority and those entrusted with responsibilities are the ones who have turned to be the captains among the legions of maggots eating up the nation.”

He added that the oppressed in Nigeria are beginning to have a sense of relief and a new lease of life on account of the action of the present administration. He said they have perceived a new era that under the leadership of Buhari, the monster will not only be confronted, but also attacked vehemently.

He said the populace must resist the cabals who have pillaged the commonwealth and plundered the nation’s resources.
