“Let us remember that throughout history, nations that have come together to work for a common goal have succeeded in developing their people and communities. It is therefore only through unity that we will be able to successfully overcome the challenges of our time that have prevented us from achieving our potentials as a truly great nation.
“Eid el-Fitr, with its focus on harmony, mutual respect and understanding, is a fitting occasion to re-affirm our commitment to our shared values and the common bonds that tie us together.
“So as we mark this year’s Eid el-Fitr, I enjoin all Nigerians to embrace and also celebrate the values that unite us to enable work together to tackle the developmental issues of insecurity, corruption and employment deficit (ICE) that confront our nation.
“Once again, on behalf of the people of Delta Central Senatorial District and my family, I wish all Muslims a happy Eid el-Fitr, and all the peace and fulfilment it may bring,” the senator said in a statement yesterday signed by Godwin Anaughe his SSA, Communications & Strategy
