The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has congratulated Muslims across the state for witnessing another Eid-ul-Fitri, which signals the end of 30 days fasting in the just concluded month of Ramadan.
In a statement signed by the party’s caretaker Publicity Secretary, Dr AbdulAzeez Olatunde, on Wednesday, Oyo APC urged Islamic faithful to imbibe the lesson learned during the Ramadan and to allow it continue to guide “our daily interactions in other months.”
“The most salient and unforgettable lesson learnt was the spirit of sharing, especially breaking of fast, called Iftar with the less privileged in our society which mostly makes the month of Ramadan very unique.
“We are equally urging the Islamic faithful to utilize their spiritual reset mode to pray for our country for peace against the current malaise of banditry, insurgency and kidnapping that is threatening the corporate existence of our country.
“Furthermore, Islamic faithful are urged to celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitri with moderation, conscious of the just breaking third wave of COVID-19 pandemic that is seriously threatening human existence,” the statement read in part.
The party enjoined Islamic faithful to pray for “our leaders at this trying time of global economic uncertainty.”
