Muslims all over world celebrate the end of the Ramadan fast.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on Nigerians to inculcate and sustain the lessons from the holy month of Ramadan in all facets of life so as to ensure a united and prosperous Nigeria.
The party in an Eid-El-Fitr message signed by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Tony Okeke, urged “all Nigerians to eschew all forms of bitterness and violence and make room for forgiveness, patriotism, love and peaceful co-existence among themselves”.
“We cannot move forward or get to the promised land as a nation in the void of love, unity and patriotism. It is imperative that we eschew all forms of bitterness and unite as one people under God who in his infinite wisdom and mercy decided to bring us together.
“Our nation is replete with immense human and material resources but we can only harness them maximally for the overall benefit of the people if we learn to work together as a people and put the interest of the nation above personal or sectional considerations.
“Nigerians are known for rallying around their leaders at the time of critical challenges. We must therefore not allow the enemies of our dear nation who seek personal gains and stoke the fires of divisions and violence among our people to have their way”, the statement said.
The party also called on those behind the series of violent attacks and bloodletting in various parts of the country to use this year’s Eid-El Fitr to have a rethink and understand that life is sacrosanct and should not be taken by any person under any guise.
The PDP wished all Nigerians a happy Sallah celebration and prayed for enduring peace in the country.
