NCP Felicitates with Muslims on Eid-El-Fitr


The National Conscience Party joins our
Muslim ummah to celebrate this year’s Eid-el-fitr. We congratulate the entire
Nigerian Muslim community for
successfully concluding the observance of the holy month of Ramadan.

The restrictions and inconveniences imposed by the novel corona virus has
made the observation of this year’s Ramadan far more tasking and indeed
more spiritually rewarding for all Muslims. Your perseverance through the
fasting period is a shining embodiment of the spirit of Eid.

Eid-el-fitr is a very significant event in the life of every Muslim chiefly
because of the virtues it exemplifies. Eid-el-fitr teaches denial, dedication,
discipline, diligence, love and sharing. Eid-el-fitr is also a time of stock
taking as Muslims use the period of the Ramadan fasting to take an
objective assessment of their areas of strength and weakness. The
strengths are consolidated while the weaknesses are strengthened.

Eid-el-fitr reinforces the lessons of Covid-19. The need to love and to share
has never been as profoundly communicated as during the current global
fight against Covid-19. There is no better time to share with those who do
not have especially the destitute in our midst.

This year’s Eid-el-fitr also echoes the message of hope which inspires all of
us that though the night of COVID-19 might be long but the rays of the
dawn of Allah’s benevolent mercies would soon arrive to compensate for all
the current troubles. We can only keep faith alive.

The in a statement signed by its Special Adviser on media and publicity to the party National Chairman urge every Nigerian Muslim and all citizens to fully imbibe the virtues of Eid-el-fitri.

The party noted that it is very important to stress that we must all rise to the existential challenges thrown up by the corona virus pandemic. We must take
personal responsibilities for our own health especially through abiding by
extant public health regulations.

Finally, the party appreciate all Muslims for praying for Nigeria during this year’s Ramadan especially in the face of the deadly novel corona virus disease. As we navigate our way through the Covid-19
cauldron, we urge all Nigerians to intensify prayers for national peace and
safety. We all must also renew our commitment to contributing our quota to
ensure a stable, inclusive and resilient Nigerian society. It is our prayer that
by next year’s Eid, the troubles of the current Covid-19 would have paled
into history, in sha Allah (SWT).

Once again, we extend our best wishes for a most rewarding Eid-el-fitr.
May Allah’s blessings be multiplied on us and may our supplications and
other prayers during this holy month of Ramadan bring an end to the Covid-19 pandemic in Nigeria and all over the world.


Comrade Omole Akande, Special Adviser to the Party National Chairman. Dr. Yunusa Tanko
