Eid el-Fitr: Be security conscious, celebrate responsibly – Wike to FCT Muslims

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike has called for security consciousness and responsible celebration as the Muslim Faithful mark the Eid el-Fitr.

Wike made the call in a statement he personally signed, congratulating the Muslim Ummah as they bid farewell to the holy month of Ramadan.

Wike pointed out that the Eid el-Fitr also serves as a profound reminder of the values of compassion, generosity, and unity that lie at the heart of Islam.

“During Ramadan, we witnessed the spirit of self-discipline, compassion, and unity that defines this sacred month. It is a time when we come together in solidarity, sharing meals, breaking fasts, and supporting one another in acts of charity and kindness,” he said.

“I urge us, however, not to limit these acts of charity, love, and tolerance to only the holy month but should inculcate this culture into our everyday lives.

“The end of Ramadan should also not signal an end to our prayers. I hereby enjoin us all to continue to offer supplications to the Almighty for our dear country Nigeria and her leaders for divine wisdom and guidance, especially as they work ceaselessly to overcome our current challenges.

“Fellow residents of the FCT, this spirit of unity and togetherness that characterizes the nation’s capital is not only integral to the observance of Ramadan but also resonates deeply with the values of harmony and cohesion that the Federal Capital Territory stands for.

“The FCT embodies diversity, tolerance, and harmony, serving as a symbol of unity for all Nigerians. Our strength lies in our ability to embrace our differences and work together towards common goals, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or background.

“As we celebrate Eid el-Fitr, let us reaffirm our commitment to building a society where every individual is valued and respected, and where peace and harmony prevail.

“Let us imbibe the message of the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR which prioritizes the well-being and prosperity of all Nigerians.

“Under this noble agenda the FCTA is focusing on infrastructure development, healthcare, education, security, and economic empowerment.

“The progress we have made so far, especially in the areas of security and provision of infrastructure in the road and rail sectors and reforms in the administration of the FCTA, have been recognized and applauded.

“By investing in these key areas, we aim to create a more vibrant and resilient FCT, where every individual has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.

“As we celebrate Eid el-Fitr, I urge all residents to celebrate responsibly and be security-conscious at all times.”
