APC, Kaduna PDP guber candidate task Moslems on virtues of Ramadan
The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday sent goodwill messages to Moslems and Nigerians over the Eid el-Fitr festival signaling the end of Ramadan period.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa Onilu, the party charged the Moslems to continue to imbibe the spirit, virtues and lessons of Ramadan, which include sacrifice, modesty and discipline in rededicating themselves to the task of nation building.
It assured that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration’s commitment to the protection of lives and property of every Nigerian remained sacrosanct.
“We equally admonish Moslems and non-Moslems to cultivate tolerance in their relationships with fellow Nigerians and shun all divisive acts and tendencies capable of destabilising the country.
“In the wake of our security challenges such as terrorism, armed banditry and kidnapping, we ask all Nigerians to remain vigilant and security conscious and report suspicious activities around them to relevant security agencies.
“Our great party urges all Nigerians to continue to pray for the peace, progress, stability and prosperity of our country and grant our leaders at all levels the wisdom to successfully steer the ship of our great nation,” the statement reads.
Besides, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna State, Alhajj Isa Ashiru Kudan, has enjoined Moslems to uphold the virtues of Ramadan fast in their daily affairs.
While congratulating Muslims for successfully completing the Ramadan fast, he urged them to continue to pray for peace and stability in Kaduna State and the entire country.
Ashiru in a statement said the Ramadan period provided an opportunity for Moslems to be close to Allah and to perfect their religion in the best way possible.
He stressed the need for people to continue to pray for an end to the insecurity in the state and other parts of the country, stressing that the situation could only be overcome through dedication to prayers and seeking God’s forgiveness.
“We have to be dedicated in prayers. Sometimes, it is our own attitude to man and God that leads us to some kind of calamity without us really understanding what is happening to us as a people.
“The best thing is to continue to seek for forgiveness and we may be lucky to attract the mercies of God,” he added.
