AS Muslim faithful celebrate Eid-el Fitri to mark the end of the month of Ramadan, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called on the Muslim Umma and all Nigerians to hold on to the lessons and virtues of Ramadan as they remain relevant, both to their spiritual wellbeing and to nation-building.

Director General of NOA, Garba Abari made the call in an Eid-el Fitri felicitation message to the Muslim faithful, noting that Ramadan was a month-long religious obligation with far longer social benefits.

He said Muslims had imbibed the virtues of patience, self-control, sacrifice and sobriety during Ramadan, hence Eid-el Fitri should be seen as a celebration of those virtues and a commitment to their sustenance in the lives of all Muslims.

Abari said, “Any nation where its citizens possess these virtues is on the path to great and sustainable development because citizens will consequently do the right things for the good of their neighbours, their community and their nation.”

While wishing the Muslim Umma an Eid-el Fitri full of God’s blessings, the NOA Director-General urged them to use the occasion to pray for God’s mercies on the nation, its leadership and its people.
