Sallah Press Statement
The Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has charged Nigerians not to allow the prevailing hardship and mounting insecurity in the country to adversely affect their spirit of love, brotherliness and peaceful co-existence.
Rather, Obi said, the people should use this year’s Eid-El Fitri festivities to engender the spirit of oneness and also re-dedicate themselves to the virtues of love, patriotism and unity for the desired national development.
The former Anambra state Governor, in a statement from his media office, noted that Nigerians should allow the solemnness of the last one month of Ramadan to positively influence their thoughts and actions in relating with one another.
According to him, the Ramadan period presents a great opportunity for Nigerians to devote themselves to the values that unite and bind all citizens in love, while permanently putting behind them all divisive tendencies.
Obi finally wished all Nigerians a happy Sallah celebration and prayed for enduring peace in a secure and peaceful country.
