The Senator representing the Lagos East Senatorial District, Distinguished Senator Mukhail Adetokunbo Abiru, FCA, has felicitated with Muslim faithful on this year’s Eid – el – Fitr celebrations, marking the end of the Ramadan fasting.
Senator Abiru in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Enitan Olukotun, in Lagos on Friday, extolled Muslim ummah for their sacrifice, steadfastness and perseverance in the month of Ramadan, in obedience to the injunction of Almighty Allah.
While urging Muslims to eschew vices they forsook during the Holy month, Senator Abiru admonished all Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for Nigeria, particularly, as the President-Elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is set to take the mantle of leadership of our dear country.
He said, “On behalf of my family, I felicitate with my esteemed constituents, particularly the Muslim Ummah of the Lagos East Senatorial District on the celebrations of the 2023 Eid-El-Fitr, which marks the completion of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan”.
“ I admonish fellow Muslim brothers and sisters to continue on the glorious path of godly living we all lived during the Holy month of Ramadan. Eid el-fitr festival symbolises sacrifice, selflessness, love and obedience to the tenets of Islam. I therefore enjoin us to draw enduring lessons from Ramadan and show love to one another as well as promote harmony, peaceful coexistence, and leverage our diversity for national development.
“I also use this season to implore all Nigerians to continue to pray for our dear nation, and also support and cooperate with the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The enormous task of nation building requires the support of all well-meaning and patriotic citizens. Therefore, we should collectively join hands to rebuild our nation.
“I wish all Muslims Happy Eid El Fitr celebrations and may the Almighty Allah continue to bless our nation. Ameen”.
