The Minority Caucus in the House of Representatives has said that Nigeria is currently facing the most challenging time as people grapple with governance, sociopolitical and economic realities occasioned by unprecedented poor living conditions and invidious government policies

This is also as the Caucus has felicitated with Muslim faithful, particularly those in Nigeria, on the occasion of this year’s Eid-Mubarak celebrations.

According to a statement signed by the Minority Leader, Hon Kingsley Chinda, Muslim faithful and all Nigerians should remain firm, steadfast and resolute in playing their respective parts in ensuring the rebirth of a truly secular, progressive and egalitarian Nigerian society.

He added that Nigerians are daily faced with realities of hunger, excruciating pain, poverty, several killings, abductions and kidnappings across the country.

“For ourselves, our families and constituents, we join several well-meaning Nigerians to felicitate with the Muslim faithful, particularly those in Nigeria, on the occasion of this year’s Eid-Mubarak celebrations.

“As a caucus, we are elated and most heartily rejoice with our Muslim brethren on this auspicious occasion which is celebrated globally.

“We urge our Muslim brethren to continue to exhibit the spirit of tolerance, forgiveness, self-sacrifice, mutual love for one another, kind disposition, good neighbourliness and peaceful coexistence with others, as demonstrated by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Unto Him).

“However, we hope and pray that this event will allow our Muslim brethren to continue to pray for the unity, peace and progress of our dear country, Nigeria.

“We are a resilient people and very confident that God is on our side and that we shall collectively triumph in the end.

“Once again, congratulations and happy Eid-Mubarak celebrations to our Muslim brethren.
