The party urged Nigerians to use the Eid-el-Kabir to imbibe the life of total trust in the Almighty God in all spheres of life.

According to the PDP, the Eid-el-Kabir indeed offers Nigerians great lessons on selflessness and absolute trust in God, as exemplified in the life of Prophet Ibrahim.

It called on all compatriots to use the occasion to particularly pray for the nation, reach out and share with the less privileged, the deprived, as well as victims of escalated insecurity in various parts of the country in the recent time.

The party also asked leaders in all walks of life, including public office holders, faith-based and community leaders, captains of industry and employers of labour to note that their positions were bestowed on them by God for service to humanity, and for which they must give account.

It prayed for the unity, peace, stability and development of the country and wished Nigerians, particularly the Muslim community, a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
