The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, has felicitated with Muslims for concluding their Ramadan fasting.
She said Nigeria and the entire world needs a continuation of self-control, godliness and generosity towards others.
Aliyu commended them for their passionate observance of the Ramadan fasting and adherence to holy injunctions.
She also emphasised the need for careful observance of COVID-19 protocols, noting that while Nigeria had been relatively safe thus far, the world was yet to overcome the pandemic.
“I felicitate with all Muslims across the Nigerian federation as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitri which was begun by the holy Prophet of Islam. It is a special day for expressing gratitude to the Almighty Allah for all that we are and all that we have.
“The lessons of this period, including the virtues that the Holy month of Ramadan emphasise are worth being sustained towards making our nation and indeed, the world, a better place.
“I, therefore, call on all our Muslim brothers and sisters across Nigeria to continue to reflect on how their spiritual lives and cultivation of human virtues can contribute more towards fostering peace, unity and progress in our dear nation,” the Minister stated.
