Eid-Fitr: Ekweremadu Congratulates Muslims, Calls for Continued Prayers Against COVID-19

Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has congratulated the Muslim Ummah on the successful completion of the Ramadan Fast, urging them, however, not to relent in their prayers and concerted efforts against COVID-19 pandemic.

Ekweremadu equally enjoined them to continue in the virtues of love, forgiveness, and unity imbibed during the Ramadan Fast.

The lawmaker, who represents Enugu-West Senatorial District, stated these in his goodwill message to the Muslim Ummah at Eid-Fitr signed by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu.

“I felicitate with our Muslim brothers and sisters on this occasion of Eid-Fitr.

“It is, however, important to note that this will be an unusual Sallah without the normal fanfare and exchange of goodwill visits across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I, therefore, enjoin the Muslim Ummah to celebrate safely, bearing in mind that this pandemic will pass and there will be more Sallah celebrations ahead.

“Importantly, I urge them not to relent in their prayers and concerted efforts against COVID-19. These trying times call for full exercise of our faith in the Almighty and total obedience to the directives of the constituted authorities in the management of the pandemic.

“These trying times also reminds us that we are one people, hence the need to continue to uphold the great virtues of peace, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, unity, and patriotism imbibed during the Ramadan Fast in every respect of our personal and national lives as a people”, he said.

Ekweremadu wished Muslim Ummah hitch-free and merry Sallah celebrations.
