Dogara Felicitates With Muslims On Eid-El-Fitri Celebration
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Yakubu Dogara, has congratulated the entire Muslim Ummah across Nigeria on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, in Abuja, the Speaker urged Muslims to use the period of Eid-el-Fitri to pray for Nigeria to overcome its present challenges.
Dogara also asked Muslims to allow the lessons of humility, sacrifice, love and selfless service garnered during the 30-day fast to guide their lives and activities.
He noted that the holy month of Ramadan afforded Muslims the opportunity to show compassion, mercy and kindness to their fellow men and also advised that they should continue to put smiles on the faces of others beyond the Ramadan period.
“May I use this opportunity to urge the faithful to use the occasion to reflect on the lessons of Ramadan and continue to imbibe its teachings which are primarily premised on selflessness, sacrifice, patience, modesty and spirituality”, Dogara admonished.
The Speaker also called for prayers for the success of the country’s leadership under President Muhammadu Buhari for God to continue to guide, protect and give him the wisdom to steer the affairs of the state and actualise the change agenda.
Affirming the National Assembly’s commitment to upholding the tenets of democracy and championing the cause of the electorates at all times, the Speaker promised that the House of Reps would continue to initiate laws and legislative interventions to support the change agenda and improve the living conditions of Nigerians.
