Nigeria’s governing party the All Progressives Congress, APC has called on Nigerians to follow the Islamic teachings of sacrifice and selflessness as Muslims mark the Eid ul-Adha festival.
According to the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, the party celebrates the Eid ul-Adha with Muslim Ummah.
Mr. Nabena urged Nigerians to embrace harmonious coexistence.
“The important Islamic festival teaches us the value of sacrifice and selflessness to one another irrespective of our perceived differences – religious, tribal, ethnic, political, cultural among others.
“In the end, we are all human beings and its humane to look out for ourselves, particularly the disadvantaged and less-priviledged around us. We must, therefore, resist and reject divisive elements who try to spread hate and intolerance instead of harmony and peaceful coexistence. Their intentions are myopic, self-serving, unprogressive and evil” he said.
Mr. Nabena further assured Nigerians of President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to fighting corruption.
“The APC assures citizens that the President Muhammadu Buhari government is unrelenting in the fight against corruption in spite of skewed narratives from opposition partisans. The fight against corruption is total and unsparing as recent inquests and prosecutions undertaken by the current government have shown.
Doubters and naysayers are welcome to test the administration’s resolve to fight corruption. The full weight of the law awaits them”.
He also reminded Nigerians to observe all the safety guidelines in this time of Corona Virus Pandemic.
