The President Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Ayuba Wabba on the occasion of Eid-el- Fitr, urge all Muslims and non-Muslims to imbibe the spirit of Ramadan fast which teaches us discipline, forgiveness, good neighbourliness, self-control, and service to God and humanity.

Comrade Wabba said this year’s Eid-el-Fitr came at the significant point in our national life when Nigeria is confronted with rising incidence of insecurity, unemployment, poverty, instability and renewed separatists agitations.

According to Wabba, NLC would use the occasion of this Eid-el-Fitr to call on the government to rededicate itself in its service to the nation especially on the issues of security, stability, economy, justice, and confidence-building.

He said the Nigeria Labour Congress wish to congratulate as well as celebrate with Muslim brethren as they mark the Eid-el-Fitr.

Eid-el-Fitr (the festival of the breaking of fast) marks the end of the Ramadan fast during which fast, abstentions from indulgence, utmost discipline, special prayers, giving of special charity and performance of other acts of piety are observed in total obedience and submission to Allah.

Eid-el-Fitr, therefore, among other things, represents a magnificent celebration and showing of profound gratitude to Allah.

We similarly urge all Nigerians, in spite of the overwhelming challenges in the polity to continue to have faith in their country and to do all that is necessary to safeguard and promote its sovereignty, integrity and prosperity. We have no doubt, we shall over come, as one people with a common destiny.
