The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has congratulated Muslims in the state as they celebrate Eid-El Fitr after the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.

In his Eid-El Fitr message, Obaseki charged Muslim faithful to sustain the lessons of sacrifice, selflessness, tolerance, discipline and love learnt during the period of Ramadan, noting that the virtues are necessary in achieving peace, unity and sustainable socio-economic development in the country.

Obaseki said, “I felicitate our Muslim faithful on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr after completing the Ramadan fast, a major pillar of Islam.

“The Holy month of Ramadan provided a fine opportunity for our Muslim brothers and sisters to reconnect with Allah, showing love, care and compassion to one another, especially at this time when majority of citizens are experiencing hardship arising the nation’s harsh economic realities.

“However, I urge you not to forget the lessons learnt during this period. We must continue to imbibe the virtues of love, tolerance, sacrifice and charity, as taught by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W), as it is only then can we be certain of achieving peace and unity, and place the country on the path of sustainable development.”
