The Labour Party has expressed its congratulations to Muslim believers throughout Nigeria as they celebrated this year’s Eid-ed-Kabir alongside Muslims around the globe.
In a statement issued by the party, which was signed by National Publicity Secretary Abayomi Arabambi on behalf of National Chairman Alhaji Lamidi Apapa, the party urged all Nigerians to stay together and keep praying for the country’s continued peace.
The event exhorted Muslims to adopt the sacrifice-centered values Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) embodied.
According to the gathering, the message of the Sallah is one of devotion and sacrifice, and as sincere adherents, we must internalize these lessons because nothing worthwhile is achieved without sacrifice.
“We will continue to pray for our leaders to do things that will take our people out of the poverty and economic crisis that we found ourselves in now, but as citizens, we also must remain committed to the ideals of nation-building.
We shall continue to challenge our leaders as a strong party in Nigeria to act morally at all times and to treat everyone equally without regard to race or tribe.
The party demanded that the government quickly implement palliative measures to mitigate the impact of the termination of the fuel subsidy because Our people cannot continue to wait indefinitely, even if we appreciate the sacrifices made by all Nigerians, most notably the masses.
The party also charged Nigerians to renew their commitment to one Nigeria and be focused on their hope for a greater country under president Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR)
The party called on all political leaders in the country to pray and support one Nigeria in unity and diversity under the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in respective of political affiliation as we have no other country than Nigeria
“Eid-el-Kabir embodied love, peace and sacrifice beyond the season, and called for tolerance, synergy and cooperation among citizens for the nation to overcome its current challenges.
“We also called on Nigerians to embrace peaceful co-existence exemplified in genuine brotherliness and turn to Allah for forgiveness to rekindle the healing of the land of multi-faceted ills confronting it.
Given the resolve of well-meaning citizens, we are confident as a party that Nigeria will quickly return to the period of recovery and greatness.
“We wish all of the country’s Muslim brethren a happy Eid-el-Kabir in 2023 on behalf of everyone in the Labour Party.
