APGA, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary of APGA, Chief Henry Okolie-Aboh, also charged the rich not to fail to extend their hands of assistance to those who do not have among them.

The statement reads; “The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, felicitates with the Muslim faithful as they mark the Eid al-Kabir; the festival of feast and sacrifice.

“The Party urges them as they celebrate to equally use this period to have deep and genuine spiritual reflection as well as imbibe generally the seminal teachings of Allah for the common good of the the nation and humanity at large.

“APGA therefore calls on the rich not to fail to extend their hands of assistance to those who do not have among them, so that they will be part of this great celebration notwithstanding the present harsh economic condition in the country.

“The party moreover uses this opportunity to call on all Nigerians especially political Leaders and others in various fields of human endeavours, to be altruistic and selfless, in the discharge of there responsibilities and general conducts, for the growth of our nationhood and the good of our society.”
