The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has felicitated with Muslims on the celebration of Eid el-Fitr. Chairman of the party, Paul Omotosho, stated in Ado Ekiti yesterday that it was a thing of joy that Muslims still observed the holy month of fasting and total abstinence despite the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) ravaging the world.

“I implore you all to continue to pray for this country, even after the holy month, for quick return to normalcy in the land and to also join hands with the state government to ensure peace and stability in the state.
Meanwhile, the National Chairman of Social Democratic Party (SDP), Prof. Tunde Adeniran, commended the efforts of the federal and state governments in managing the scourge and its attendant socio-economic disruptions.
Odeniran said, “Our health workers at the front line of the war, who are the bearers of the burden of providing the required services in the treatment of patients, deserve national commendation and the best of support that the governments can give them in appreciation of their heroic devotion to duty and commitment to county.”
Also, the African Democratic Party (ADC) urged Muslims in Nigeria to sustain the virtues of Ramadan, “so that together we can build a peaceful and prosperous country.”
