Action Democratic Party (ADP) has called on Muslim faithful in the country to sustain the holiness which characterised the just-concluded 30-day fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.
The party also urged Nigerians across faiths, to unite and use the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr to prepare their minds for the resuscitation of the nation, from the uninspiring situation successive poor administrations had led it to.
The party made the call in a congratulatory message to the Muslim faithful in Nigeria over the successful completion of the Ramadan.
In the message issued and signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Prince Adelaja Adeoye, the party said it considered Ramadan as a period of purification through fasting and seeking for blessings and forgiveness from Almighty Allah, the creator of mankind, adding that its conclusion was a grace from Allah worthy of celebration.
ADP urged Nigerians across faiths, to unite and use the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr to prepare their minds for the resuscitation of the nation, from the uninspiring situation successive poor administrations had led it to.
According to the party, Nigerians should use this Eid-el-Fitr to seek the face of Allah in prayers in order for the Coronavirus pandemic to be over, saying: “It is important that Nigerians must get back to their normal lives, businesses must re-open, school Children must return back to class, religious organisations must get back as the life wire of mankind.”
The party charged Nigerians to join hands in efforts to salvage the country from the state of hopelessness that this current government symbolises, saying they must resolve to move forward to build a country where goals and aspirations were met.
The party said they must remember the teaching of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) which encouraged a strong commitment to the development of the society.
“The teachings that the Holy month afford us, which are essentially love, self-denial and good conduct in our daily relationships, are core basis towards a better society and we must hearken to them jealously,” ADP said.
While wishing Nigerians and the entire Muslim Ummah a Happy Eid-el-Fitr celebration, the party enjoined fellow citizens to rededicate themselves to the struggle for the emancipation of the country as they reflected on the ideals of Ramadan and Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
