Read full statement below.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) wishes all Nigerian Muslim faithful a happy Eid el-Fitr cerebration.
The Party congratulates the Muslim Community for successfully completing the Ramadan fast and urges them to continue to pray for the peace, unity and prosperity of the country.
As a Party, we note that the economic progress and development the country seeks cannot be achieved in a state of rancour, disunity and discord. The Party therefore urges all Nigerians, especially the people of faith, to exercise temperance, love and understanding, while shunning divisive and hate speech.
The Party thanks all Nigerians for their support of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, and urge them to remember our dear President in their prayers for God to restore his health and for the success of his administration.
The APC notes that although the country has gone through several challenges recently occasioned by the economic recession, the future is bright as the Federal Government implements policies and programmes to diversify the economy, secure the future and ensure enduring legacies.
Once again, we wish the Muslim community a peaceful and happy Eid el-Fitr celebration.
