The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the Muslim ummah on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast and the Eid el-Fitr celebration.

The opposition party also urged the Muslim faithful and Nigerians as a whole to allow the virtues, values and lessons observed, inculcated and imbibed during the Holy Month of Ramadan and fasting to guide their everyday lives.

Hon Debo Ologunagba, National Publicity Secretary of the party, in a statement, said: “Eid el-Fitr offers us the divine pathway to rededicate to a life of love, forgiveness, restraint, tolerance, temperance, unity, mutual understanding, peaceful coexistence, care and compassion for one another, and most importantly, absolute faith, trust and total obedience to the will and command of the Almighty Allah in all our dealings.”

The PDP urged Nigerians not to surrender to despondency or allow the hardship and misery in the country to weaken their love and support for one another, but remain resolute in their hope and pursuit of a better, secure and prosperous nation.

Similarly, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Nigerians, especially Muslim faithfuls, to pray for the country’s unity, security and progress as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitr – the feast of breaking the fast.

Mr Henry Morka, the party’s National Publicity Secretary made the call in a statement in Abuja.

“The sunrise-to-sunset fast leading to this celebration is usually characterised by repentance, supplications, piety, charity, spiritual upliftment and total devotion to Allah.

“As we celebrate, we urge our Muslim faithfuls to continue to lead lives that exemplify such timeless virtues as self-denial, more prayers for humility, love, kindness, charity and forgiveness,” he said.

Earlier, the APC National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, has called on the Muslim faithful to sustain prayers for the country.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary,  Mr Edwin Olofin,  in Abuja, Ganduje also urged Muslims to pray that President Bola Tinubu would take Nigerians to the promised land.

The APC national chairman urged Muslims  to reflect the lessons  of Ramadan in their day-to-day lives, and called for more support for the current administration.

He noted that the 30-day Ramadan fast was a period of spiritual cleansing, patience  and  sacrifices.
