The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Eid El Kabir to rekindle their faith, hope and trust in the Almighty Allah as the ultimate solution to all the travails of mankind.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made this known in a statement on Friday.

It also counselled leaders at all levels of engagement in the country to imbibe the lessons of Eid-el Kabir, especially the demand for total obedience to the will and command of the Almighty Allah.

Speaking further, Ologbondiyan noted that such dependence on the will and command of God by the leaders and citizens alike is the only way to pull our nation out of the economic, health and security predicaments that have confronted us in the recent time.

He noted that the country has been able to battle various challenges, the recent being the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, largely by divine intervention, and as such urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their trust in God.

The party also urged Nigerians to use the occasion to reinforce their love for one another by showing care, particularly to the less privileged, the sick, the bereaved, the aged as well as victims of various challenges of life.

Furthermore, the party warned that Nigerians must not drop their guards in this time of celebration but should continue to be vigilant and redouble their efforts in observing all COVID-19 protocols of social distancing, personal and public hygiene, early reporting of symptoms as well as other government directives particularly with regard to mass gatherings.

The PDP prayed for the nation and wishes all Nigerians a happy Eid-el Kabir celebration.
