Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori has begged Muslim faithful to see the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitr as a way to build a relationship of friendship and harmony with fellow Muslim citizens.
In a recent press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Dennis Otu, Sheriff hailed Muslims in the state and Nigeria for the successful completion of the month-long Ramadan fasting.
According to him, even if this year’s Eid-el-Fitr was celebrated in an unusual atmosphere because of the coronavirus pandemic, God will surely win this battle for mankind.
He added that Nigerians should keep showing love while being generous during the deadly outbreak.
His words, ”There is no doubt that you are celebrating this year’s Eid-el-Fitr in an unusual atmosphere because of the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world. But God will surely win this battle for mankind.
”I want to urge Muslim faithful to use the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitr to build a relationship of friendship and harmony with fellow citizens of other faith. Let us collectively pray for an end to the COVID -19 pandemic in our country in particular and the world in general”.
“Let us show love and be generous because we are passing through a period that we have never experienced before in our land and with God, everything is going to be fine again. We need love, peace and justice in our nation now more than ever before”.
