By Sadiq Abubakar, Abuja.
The senate minority leader, Senator Phillip Aduda representing the FCT, Senator Philip Aduda, has congratulated the people of the territory and the entire Muslim Ummah on the commencement of the Ramadan fast.
He congratulated the faithful for the opportunity to witness this holy month of the Islamic calendar, the bountiful acts of worship and the benefits contained.
Aduda, stated this in a statement signed by his special assistant on special duties, Samuel Danjuma Shekwolo, made available to newsmen in Abuja on Friday.
“I congratulate all the Muslims for this rare opportunity which by the grace of Allah our lives were spared and provided with good health to reap the rich benefits in this holy month.
“We should therefore, have a sober reflection, seek Allah’s forgiveness, internalise the teachings of the Holy Ramadan, build new relationships and pray for security and prosperity of our state and country” Governor Buni said.
He assured that he would continue to promote peace and peaceful coexistence across the FCT.
“We will concentrate on people-oriented projects and policies that would improve the lives of our people” Aduda added.
Aduda, however, reminded the faithful to engage in acts of worship and prayers against wasting time on trivial issues and argument.
He prayed for a fruitful Ramadan fast and Sallah celebration at the end of the one month fasting period.
