Eid el-Fitr: Let’s work together for a common goal, Omo-Agege urges Nigerians

As Muslims all over the world celebrate this year’s Eid el-Fitr, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege (APC-Delta) has called on Nigerians to work together for a common goal of developing the country.

Omo-Agege, who represents Delta Central Senatorial District, made the call, on Tuesday, in a statement by Godwin Anaughe, his Senior Special Assistant on Communications and Strategy, in Abuja.

He congratulated the Muslim faithful on the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan.

”Today, as Muslims in Nigeria and around the world come together in celebration of the end of Ramadan, I extend my heartiest felicitations to the nation and wish all Muslims a blessed and joyful celebration of Eid el-Fitr 2019.

”After a month-long self-restraint, spiritual renewal and recommitment to the values of gratitude, charity and compassion, it is my hope that the experience of Ramadan will provide renewed strength, greater commitment and increased blessings to our people, communities and further unite our country.

”Let us remember that throughout history, nations that have come together to work for a common goal have succeeded in developing their people and communities.

”It is therefore only through unity that we will be able to successfully overcome the challenges of our time that have prevented us from achieving our potentials as a truly great nation,” he said.

According to him, Eid el-Fitr, with its focus on harmony, mutual respect and understanding, is a fitting occasion to reaffirm our commitment to our shared values and the common bonds that tie us together.

The senator-elect, however, urged all Nigerians to embrace and celebrate ”the values that unite us to enable us work together to tackle the developmental issues of insecurity, corruption and employment deficit (ICE) that confront our nation.”

”Once again, on behalf of  the people of Delta Central Senatorial District and my family, I wish all Muslims a happy Eid el-Fitr, and all the peace and fulfilment it may bring,” he remarked.
