Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, has urged Muslim faithful and Nigerians to remain resolute in their abiding faith in God through prayers and sacrifice as they celebrate the Eid-el-fitr.
Ugwuanyi, who made the call in a statement on Sunday in Enugu, congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, and other Muslims on the successful completion of Ramadan fast and wished them happy celebration.
The governor noted that the religious exercise would hep in the country’s collective efforts towards winning the war against COVID-19; as well as in sustaining the peace, unity and progress of the country.
According to him, all Nigerians need is to stay safe, remain steadfast in prayers and continue to love and cherish one another.
“This is an unusual time, not only for us as a people but for the entire humanity and the world.
“I, therefore, urge that we remain committed to the core values that strengthen the bond that brought us together as a prosperous nation, as we fight back in solidarity and in determined efforts to contain this COVID-19 pandemic,’’ Ugwuanyi said. (NAN)
