The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has come out to describe the month of Ramadan as a refresher or retraining month for Muslims to test their faith.
The party recently revealed that Ramadan serves as a reminder that several Nigerians regularly suffer from hunger and thirst and this will help wealthy citizens to be more compassionate from now on.
According to APC, if Muslims break free from backbiting, lying, excessive eating, gambling, alcoholism, adultery and other vices for one month without any bad consequences, then it shows that they can do away with all evil deeds for the remaining eleven months of the year.
APC added that Muslims should keep praying for President Muhammadu Buhari, the 36 states governors, the national and state legislatures, and other appointees in government for divine assistance as they lead Nigerians.
His words, “Eid-el-Fitri is a continuation of this message as well as a reminder that the philosophy of the month of Ramadan needs to be adopted throughout the rest eleven months of the year.”
“The month of Ramadan is also a Refresher or Retraining month for Muslims to always reappraise their faith level.”
“If Muslims can break free from backbiting, lying, excessive eating, gambling, alcoholism, adultery and other vices for one month without any bad consequences then it implies that they can break away from the chains and shackles of these filthy habits for the rest of eleven months.”
“Muslims should know that they can live their lives without this odious lifestyle.”
“Furthermore, Muslims are enjoined to pray for our leaders starting from President Muhammadu Buhari, the 36 states governors, the national and state legislatures and other appointees in government for divine assistance in the current war against COVID-19 that is threatening human existence.”
“We should remember the frontline warriors that is the medical professionals for Almighty Allah’s divine support.”
“Finally, we should be careful in our celebrations of Eid-el- Fitri, conscious that in this war against COVID-19, prevention is the safest and best method of infection.”
“Let us observe social distancing in all our activities. Please pray for quick recovery of those under the affliction of COVID-19 and for the repose of those that had lost their lives to COVID-19.”
“Please pray also for quickest recovery for the economy of Nigeria from the scourge of COVID-19.”
