The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has congratulated the Muslim faithful, particularly in the State, on the successful completion of Ramadan, and the joyous celebrations of Eid-el-Fitri.
In a statement by the state’s Publicity Secretary of APC, Mr. Alex Kalejaye, the party said it took lots of sacrifice, self control, and determination to ignore personal pleasure for spiritual purposes.
The APC urged all Muslim faithful, and indeed, Nigerians to celebrate with full consciousness of prevailing situation in the land.
“In our sober reflections, we should pray for security, peaceful coexistence among Nigerians, and progress of the nation”, Kalejaye added.
He added: “It is our hope and prayer that Ramadan’s spiritual lessons and the Holy Prophet’s teachings of piety, love, justice, fairness, equity, tolerance, honesty, and dedication to duty will remain with us all.”
He observed that the country is passing through a tense phase in it’s development, particularly with regards to security challenge, and the ravaging COVID-19, that has caused much destruction in countries like India and Brazil, and called for greater understanding on the part of the citizens.
The party appealed to Muslim faithful and all celebrating with them to exhibit regards to the curfew and Covid protocols, as spelt out by the government, to avoid destructive dimension.
