The All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on Muslims to imbibe the lessons of Ramadan, which include personal sacrifice, charity, sobriety and self-discipline.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu gave the advice in a statement in Abuja on Saturday, while congratulating Muslims on the successful completion of the 2020 Ramadan fasting and the celebration of Eid-el-Fitri.
He said “As we complete this important religious obligation, we join the Nigerian Muslim community in beseeching Allah to accede to all their prayers and accept their fasting as an act of worship.
“It is our hope that the important lessons of Ramadan, including personal sacrifice, charity, sobriety and self-discipline will not cease to be part of our ways of life in the months and years ahead.
“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.
“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 face masks 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.
“Finally, we call on Nigerians to keep supporting the government in its determined quest to make our great country secure, peaceful and prosperous.”
