BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Muslims on the successful completion of the 2020 Ramadan fasting and the celebration of Eid-el-Fitri.
The Party said that as Nigerian Muslims complete the important religious obligation, it joined the Nigerian Muslim community in beseeching Allah to accede to all their prayers and accept their fasting as an act of worship.
These were contained in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in which the party expressed the hope that the important lessons of Ramadan, including personal sacrifice, charity, sobriety and self-discipline would not cease to be part of our ways of life in the months and years ahead.
The APC said; “At this critical period of our nation’s history, these noble virtues should continue to guide our daily activities, as we strive to fulfill our duties as good citizens of this great country and stay safe amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.
“In our continuous efforts to stem the spread of this virus, the APC urges all Nigerians to adhere to public health guidelines and instructions, including safe distancing, use of facemasks at public places, among others.
“On the part of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, no effort is being spared at mitigating the negative impact of the pandemic on our people,” the party said.
It called on Nigerians to keep supporting government in its determined quest to make the country secure, peaceful and prosperous.
