The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has congratulated Nigerians, especially the Muslim Faithful on Eid-el-Fitr, and the completion of the Holy Ramadan Fasting.

The party urged them to use the occasion to pray and work towards the entrenchment of justice, equity, fairness and good governance in the country.

This was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja, on Friday.

He said , “The Holy Ramadan offers our nation the divine opportunity for serious introspection especially on issues of the fear of God, integrity, accountability, adherence to set Rules and Constitutional Order as well as the respect for the rights, personal freedom and Will of the citizens in a democratic setting.

“Nigerians, especially leaders must reflect on the essence of Ramadan and use the occasion to reawaken the virtues of selflessness, honesty, self-restraint, fair-mindedness, mutual respect, forgiveness, love and compassion for one another without regard to ethnic, sectional, religious or partisan considerations as this is the only way to achieve the much-desired politically stable and economically viable nation.

“The PDP is deeply saddened that at a time such as this, Nigerians are still under siege by terrorists and subjected to a life of fear, misery, anguish, abject poverty and excruciating economic hardship occasioned by the inexcusable misrule of incompetent, insensitive, heavily corrupt and manipulative leaders in the last eight years.

“It is more saddening that efforts by Nigerians to instill a purposeful, honest and responsible leadership is being sabotaged by oppressive forces desperate to impose themselves against the Will of the people.

“Our Party is however optimistic that with fervent prayers to God and determination of the citizens, our nation will triumph in the collective quest to entrench a God-fearing leadership that is derived from the free Will of the people as expressed at the polls.

“The PDP therefore urges Nigerians to use the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitr to further strengthen the bond of unity, forgive, love and care for one another in the hope for a new dawn of a regenerated nation where peace, justice, Rule of Law, security, prosperity and happiness of citizens shall reign.

“The PDP prays for the nation and wishes Nigerians a happy Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.”
