PDP wishes Nigeria well for Eid El- Kabir

23 September 2015, 19:19

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians to make the most of the Eid El- Kabir to pray for permanent peace and unity in the country.

The party also urged the citizens, irrespective of religious persuasions, to use the use the occasion to reflect on the virtue of faith, service, sacrifice and total submission to the will of the Almighty God, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Ibrahim.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the Eid El-Kabir, once again provided Nigerians an opportunity to resubmit to God and commit the nation and its leaders in prayers.

“Indeed, the Eid El-Kabir, while teaching great lessons in faith in the Almighty God, also provides us the opportunity to humble ourselves as a people and seek God’s intervention for our dear country,” Metuh said ahead of the Eid El- Kabir slated for Thursday.

The party also urged the citizens to rededicate themselves to the values that unite, while resisting all vices that seek to weaken their bond of unity as a people.

Meanwhile, PDP urged the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government to reciprocate by “applying itself to purposefully, make haste to chart a course of governance in the economy and other sectors of the polity, and commence the implementation of its campaign promises to the people.”

Metuh said the opposition party would remain committed to national interest by providing credible and issue-based opposition while constructively proffering alternatives to the programmes and policies of the APC-led Government.

The party wished all Nigerians a happy Eid El- Kabir while urging them to continue to consider the less-privileged in their celebrations and at all times.

The Eid El- Kabir  is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah's (God's) command to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isaac).
