Nigerian Muslims have been saluted by Senate President Godswill Akpabio on a successful conclusion to the Ramadan fast.

As they celebrate the feast of Eid El Fitri, Akpabio also sent them his best wishes for Eid Mubarak.

Akpabio’s best wishes were included in a statement signed by Hon. Eseme Eyiboh, his Special Advisor on Media and Publicity.

“On behalf of my family, the people of Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District and indeed the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I heartily rejoice with all the Muslims in Nigeria as they join their counterparts in other parts of the world to celebrate Eid El Fitri.

“I wish all of you a peaceful and sweet celebration and pray the Almighty God to grant your heart desires,” Akpabio said.

Saying, “Islam is a religion of peace and if its adherents go to God in prayer with sincerity, He will surely answer,” he asked Muslims to keep up their prayers for the peace, unity, and prosperity of Nigeria.

“I therefore ask you to pray for your leaders and the peace and unity of our dear country. I believe with your prayers, Nigeria will overcome its current challenges.

“Wherever you find yourselves, radiate the peace that Islam preaches and the love and care for the less privileged that Prophet Muhammad exemplified,” the Senate President urged.
