The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday asked Nigerians Muslims to continue with lessons learned during Ramadan.
This was contained in a statement sent to journalists by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu. The statement read:
“As we complete this important religious obligation, we join the Nigerian Muslim community in beseeching Allah to accede to all their prayers and accept their fasting as an act of worship. It is our hope that the important lessons of Ramadan, including personal sacrifice, charity, sobriety, and self-discipline would not cease to be part of our ways of life in the months and years ahead.
“At this critical period of our nation’s history, these noble virtues should continue to guide our daily activities, as we strive to fulfill our duties as good citizens of this great country and stay safe amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.
“In our continuous efforts to stem the spread of this virus, the APC urges all Nigerians to adhere to public health guidelines and instructions, including safe distancing, use of facemasks at public places, among others.
“On the part of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, no effort is being spared at mitigating the negative impact of the pandemic on our people.
“Finally, we call on Nigerians to keep supporting the government in its determined quest to make our great country secure, peaceful, and prosperous.”
