The Natives of the Federal Capital Territory under the umbrella of Abuja Original Inhabitants Youths Empowerment Organisation AOIYEO, has admonished Muslims in the Territory to use the occasion of Eid-el-fitr in praying for national peace and economic development of the country.
In his Eid-el-fitr message in Abuja, the President of AOIYEO Commandant Isaac David congratulated Muslims across the country on the completion of the month long Ramadan fast.
Commandant David further urged Muslims to reflect on the lessons learnt during Ramadan towards sustaining Allah’s blessings in their endeavours
He stressed the need for them to continue to imbibe the teachings of Ramadan in their daily lives, which are premised on selflessness, sacrifice, patience, modesty and spirituality.
“I enjoin you to continue to pray for the nation as it strives to overcome insecurity and developmental challenges that all nations went through in history” He stated
Commandant David also used the occasion to call on all residents to join hands to pray fervently for peace on the forthcoming FCT Area Councils election in February 2022.
He equally called for prayers for the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello and his colleague the FCT State Minister, Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu for wisdom to tackle security challenges in the nation’s capital.
He emphasized the need for residents irrespective of their religious belief and political inclinations to continue to live in peace and harmony with one another especially in times like this.
He also advised youths to key into the programmes of the FCTA, expecially the Household and Community Sanitation Campaign of the FCT Administration in order to put Abuja environment on a sound pedestal, which will impact positively on the overall health of residents.
“Improved personal hygiene and removal of environmental nuisances across the Federal Capital Territory will go a long way for the success of the clean Abuja project campaign,” he added.
