The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has felicitated with Muslims in the state on the celebration of Ramadan.
APC state chairman, Barrister Paul Omotosho, in a statement signed by the party’s Director of Media and Publicity, Elder Sam Oluwalana, in Ado Ekiti on Sunday said that it is a thing of joy that Muslims still observe the holy month of fasting and total abstinence despite the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world over.
Eulogising the Islamic faithful for their endurance and steadfastness during the holy month of Ramadan, he added that it is on record that the period of Ramadan had ushered in prayers for the country and supplications to end the convid- 19.
Omotosho urged Muslims not to forget to adhere to measures put in place by the state government to end the spread of the deadly disease during the celebration.
The statement added, “These measures include social distancing, washing of hands with water and soap, as well as keeping away from any congregation that is more than 20 persons.
“I will love like to implore you all to continue to pray for this country, even after the holy month for quick return to normalcy in the land and to also join hands with the state government to ensure peace and stability in the state.”
