As Muslims celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitr, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has called on Nigerians to take advantage of the occasion to reflect and intensify prayers for the peace, security, unity and progress of the country.
In his Eid-el-Fitr massage in Enugu on Thursday, Ugwuanyi rejoiced with all Muslim faithful and prayed for the blessings and guidance of Allah on them and the citizenry.
The statement was issued to newsmen by Mr Louis Amoke, the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media.
He noted that the religious event had great positive impact on the nation’s efforts in surmounting its security, socio-economic and public health challenges.
The governor, therefore, enjoined all Nigerians to continue to trust in God and embrace the cherished virtues of love, charity, peace and sacrifice as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Mohammed.
While wishing Muslims the blessings and guidance of Allah, Ugwuanyi advised Nigerians to observe peaceful celebration and strict adherence to all precautionary measures for the containment of the spread of COVID-19.
