Eid-el-Fitr: PDP de­cries di­vi­sive ten­den­cies

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has called on Nige­ri­ans to use the oc­ca­sion of the Eid-el-Fitr to pray for peace and unity of the na­tion and es­chew ac­tions that will di­vide coun­try.

In a Sal­lah mes­sage yes­ter­day, is­sued by Prince Dayo Adey­eye, the spokesman of the Sen­a­tor Ahmed Makarfi-led na­tional care­taker com­mit­tee, the party ad­vised Nige­ri­ans to es­chew all forms of bit­ter­ness and use the pe­riod for self-re­flec­tion.

“As a party, we wish all our Mus­lim brothers and sis­ters happy Eid-el Fitr and urge them to use this pe­riod to re­flect on the virtue of faith, ser­vice and to­tal sub­mis­sion to the will of the Almighty God as ex­em­pli­fied by the Holy Prophet Muham­mad,” he said.

The party also urged Nige­ri­ans to pray for the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers to be di­vinely guided in pi­lot­ing the af­fairs of the na­tion, es­pe­cially at “these try­ing times.”

The party also called on Nige­ri­ans to sup­port the Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari-led gov­ern­ment in or­der for him to suc­cess­fully de­liver div­i­dends of democ­racy to them.
