The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Muslims on the successful completion of the 2020 Ramadan fasting and the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr.
This was contained in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, made available on Saturday May 23, 2020.
“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 would not cease to be part of our ways of life in the months and years ahead,” it said.
The party stressed that at this critical period of the nation’s history, these noble virtues should continue to guide daily activities, as Nigerians strive to fulfill their duties as good citizens of this great country and stay safe amid the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.
“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 facemasks 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,” it pointed out.
APC therefore, called on Nigerians to keep supporting government in its determined quest to make the country secure, peaceful and prosperous.
