The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it celebrates with Muslim Ummah on the commemoration of Eid-el-Kabir, the important Islamic festival which remembers the total submission of Prophet Ibrahim to Almighty Allah.
This was contained in a statement signed by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, YekiniNabena.
“The important Islamic festival teaches us the value of sacrifice and selflessness to one another irrespective of our perceived differences – religious, tribal, ethnic, political, cultural among others.
“In the end, we are all human beings and it is humane to look out for ourselves, particularly the disadvantaged and less-privileged around us. We must therefore resist and reject divisive elements who try to spread hate and intolerance instead of harmony and peaceful coexistence. Their intentions are myopic, self-serving, unprogressive and evil,” it said.
The APC assured citizens that the President Muhammadu Buhari government is unrelenting in the fight against corruption inspite of skewed narratives from opposition partisans.
“The fight against corruption is total and unsparing as recent inquests and prosecutions undertaken by the current government have shown. Doubters and naysayers are welcome to test the administration’s resolve to fight corruption. The full weight of the law awaits them.
“Finally, as we go about the usual festivities, we urge all to stay safe and continue to observe public health protocols, including safe distancing because the coronavirus (COVID-19) remains a deadly global pandemic,” it concluded.
