The member representing Ibadan North-East /Ibadan South-East Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon. Abass Adigun (aka Agboworin) has urged his constituents to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir with moderation, saying survival of COVID-19 alone is enough to thank Allah for.
Agboworin is of thePeoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The lawmaker, in his Sallah message, also urged Muslim faithful in the state to continue to demonstrate beyond the Sallah celebrations, the ideals of piety, empathy, charity and solidarity hallmarking Eid-el-kabir.
He enjoined Muslims to use the celebration to pray for the sustainance of the peace in Oyo State and the steady progress being made by the Governor Seyi Makinde-led administration.
He assured that he would continue to champion their cause in the National Assembly and prioritise their welfare.
“We are celebrating this year’s Sallah in an unusual circumstance foisted on us by the Covid-19 pandemic which has not only slowed global economic growth, but also redefined life and living.
“To be alive is great grace. We may not be able to celebrate elaborately as we used to, but the gift of life we have, especially when we reflect on those who are not fortunate to see this day, is worth glorifying Allah for.
“Let’s celebrate with moderation, while not abandoning the protocols put in place by Covid-19 officials, including washing our hands, face masking and maintaining social distancing,” the lawmaker said.
