“Eid-el Kabir, a sacred holiday commemorating the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, is a powerful reminder to us all of the values of faith, obedience and selflessness.

“As we celebrate this joyous day, we honour the unwavering dedication of Prophet Ibrahim.

“On this blessed moment, I join all Muslim faithful to rejoice in the spirit of unity, compassion and gratitude. Let’s imbibe the principles of peace, love, and service to humanity,” she said.

She wished all Muslims a joyous Eid-el Kabir celebration “filled with happiness, peace and harmony”.

“I’m short of words. I don’t know how to thank our lawmaker for distributing rams to us at this hard economic time,” Ibrahim Adeiza, a civil servant, said.

Hajiya Nafisa Abubakar, a housewife, said that the lawmaker’s gesture had shown that she was a woman with human feelings.

“Do you know how a ram costs in the market at this period? But, here I am with one, offered free, for my family to celebrate the Eid-el Kabir.

“We’re indeed proud of Natasha for this show of love toward some of us who are finding things difficult in today’s Nigeria,” Abubakar said.
