Director General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has urged Nigerians to love one and live in peace as they celebrate Sallah.

He also said the period of Sallah celebration is not only for merriment but a time to reflect on happenings in the country.

According to a statement signed by the Head, Corporate Commission of the Agency, Dakuku said, “the Sallah celebration is not meant only for wining and dining but a time to reflect on re-dedicating our love for the nation. We have to exhibit values of love, peace and prayer for the country. We should also use the occasion in striving to continue to serve humanity irrespective of tribe, creed or political leanings”.

“As our country grapples with various challenges of development, this is also an apt period for all of us to pray earnestly to God to continue to bless Nigeria as well as guide and guard it as we approach the 2019 elections”. He stated.
