Id-eL-Fitr: Why We Must Sustain The Virtue Of Ramadan - TUC

The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria has congratulated all Muslim faithful on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast and also urges them to use the occasion to reflect on the lessons learnt during the period which are primarily premised on selflessness, sacrifice, patience, modesty and spirituality.

We expect Nigerians across religious divide, to be patriotic and embrace the virtues of moderation, piety, regular supplication to Allah and being our brother’s keeper like we did in the past. We have a challenge at hand that has threatened the very existence of this country if it is not well managed. Just few days ago we were forced to hold a press conference because of the uncharitable statements from different quarters. Even the people we thought knew better have not lived up to their responsibility. Instead of seeking to contribute to the rebuilding of the nation with renewed vigour and honesty they make hate speeches.

We must all retrace our steps and give peace a chance in the spirit of the Eid-el-fitri. No matter what the grouse is against the state, it can be resolved through constructive dialogue. The fasting we just concluded will be meaningless if we do not carry the lessons of the Holy month of Ramadan beyond the very month of the spiritual cleansing. We must forgive, eschew rancor,bitterness, regardless of religious, ethnic, regional, and political diversities. We must take advantage of this spiritual rebirth.

Happy Ramadan!
