The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday called on Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Eid-el Kabir to rekindle their faith, hope and trust in the Almighty Allah as the ultimate solution to all the travails of mankind.
The party in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan also counseled leaders at all levels of engagement in our country to imbibe the lessons of Eid-el Kabir, especially the demand for total obedience to the will and command of the Almighty Allah.
The PDP notes that such dependence on the will and command of God by the leaders and citizens alike is the only way to pull our nation out of the economic, health and security predicaments that have confronted us in the recent time.
The opposition party further noted that the nation has been able to battle various challenges, the recent being the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, largely by divine intervention, and as such urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their trust in God.
The PDP also urges the people to use the occasion to reinforce their love for one another by showing care, particularly to the less privileged, the sick, the bereaved, the aged as well as victims of various challenges of life.
The party however says Nigerians must not drop their guards in this time of celebration but should continue to be vigilant and redouble their efforts in observing all COVID-19 protocols of social distancing, personal and public hygiene, early reporting of symptoms as well as other government directives particularly with regard to mass gatherings.
The party prays for the nation and wishes all Nigerians a happy Eid-el Kabir celebration.
