The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed felicitations with the Muslim Community as well as all Nigerians on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitr.
The party, in a statement signed and delivered on Tuesday, June 4, to The Atlantic Post in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said the successful completion of the Ramadan points to the triumph of collective faith in God over the vicissitudes of life, both as individuals and as a nation.
The PDP urged Nigerians not to forget the eternal lessons of the Eid-el-Fitr, but to always bring them to bear in all aspects of life, particularly in their dealings with one another.
According to Nigeria’s main opposition party, the PDP, Nigerians, especially those in leadership positions, should use the occasion to rekindle the spirit of honesty, selflessness, care and love for others, so as to guarantee a united, stable and prosperous nation.
The party also beckoned on those behind various acts of violence and bloodletting in Nigeria to have a rethink, retrace their steps and join in the effort to rebuild the country for the good of all.
The PDP also urged all Nigeria’s compatriots to use the occasion to reach out and share with those that are hurting, particularly the sick, the deprived as well as victims of acts of violence in various parts of our country.
The party declared that it wishes Nigerians Eid Mubarak and happy Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.
