The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State rejoices with the Muslim faithful, particularly in the State, on the successful completion of Ramadan, and the joyous celebration of Eid-el-Fitri.
The party notes that it takes lots of sacrifice, self control, and determination to jettison personal pleasures for spiritual obligations.
The APC urges all Muslim faithful, and indeed, Nigerians to celebrate with full consciousness of the prevailing situation in the land.
It is the party’s admonition that in our sober reflections, we should pray for security, peaceful coexistence among Nigerians, and progress of the nation, for the benefits of every citizen.
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.
We are aware that the country is passing through a tense phase in it’s development, particularly with regards to security challenge, and the ravaging variant of COVID-19, that has caused much destruction in countries like India and Brazil.
We therefore call for greater understanding on the part of the citizens, as government rolls out measures to overcome all these.
While wishing Muslim faithful and all celebrating with them a chummy celebration, the party appeals they exhibit high regards for the COVID-19 protocols, as spelt out by the government, to avoid destructive dimension.
