As the Nigerian Muslim faithful join their counterparts across the globe to mark this year’s Eid El Fitri, the nation’s grandmasters of data, Globacom, has sent a message of felicitation to all Muslims across the country for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.
Globacom, in a statement issued in Lagos, on Monday, felicitated with the Muslims, expressing confidence that the prayers they offered for the peace and unity of the country had gone a long way in helping the country to survive the hard times being experienced worldwide.
The Ramadan fast takes place in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar as enshrined in the Holy Quran and is concluded with the celebration of Eid el Fitri.
The company enjoined all Muslims to take advantage of the celebration of the Eid el Fitri to promote the fear of God and piety, and called on all Nigerians to embrace peace and live in harmony with fellow Nigerians irrespective of tribe, political persuasion or religion.
“Globacom wishes all our Muslim brethren a very happy Eid El Fitri. We join all Nigerian Muslims to celebrate the conclusion of this holy month and urge all to redouble efforts to make Nigeria a land of peace and prosperity. As you round off the Ramadan fast, May the Almighty Allah accept your prayers,” the statement said.
The company also enjoined millions of Muslim faithful to pray for the peace and unity of the nation. “It is our earnest belief that, with our collective efforts, our nation will grow from strength to strength,” the statement added.
Globacom stated that the company will continue to provide customer-centric voice and data services during the Eid El Fitri holidays and beyond. It urged both existing and potential subscribers to take advantage of the mega bonus gigabytes offered by Glo Data Overload and other pocket-friendly packages to reach out to friends and family members in and outside Nigeria to share love and goodwill.
The Ramadan fast, which began on June 6 after the sighting of the moon, ends at the sighting of the moon about 30 days later in early July 2016.
