Eid-el-Fitri: Gov. Dapo Abiodun Greets Muslims, urges compliance to anti-COVID-19 measures

As Muslims across the world marks the end of the annual 30 days of Ramadan today, Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has sent a message to Nigerian Muslims faithful as they celebratr Eid-el-Fitr, urging all citizens to keep faith, rededicate themselves to finding solution to the coronavirus pandemic.

He also urged Nigerians to live in peace with one another, even as the dreaded virus continues to wreak havoc across the world.

A statement by his chief press secretary, Kunle Somorin also advised Nigerians to avoid making reckless claims and non-compliance that could aggravate the pandemic.

He urges faithfuls to fervently pray for divine intervention and scrupulously respect all measures that would help flatten the curve of the deadly virus.

The message reads further:

“Gov. Dapo Abiodun is immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us through the difficult period of coronavirus and for us to successfully conclude another Ramadan fast.

“The Governor applauds the resilience, understanding and patriotic zeal of not only all Nigerian Muslims and Christians on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr. He expresses joy that more people are recovering from the pandemic as we abide by the medical protocol of physical distancing, testing, wearing if face masks and all other measures, including the curfew and lockdown rules.

“Prince Abiodun enjoins Nigerians to allow the lessons of Ramadan namely; piety, self-denial, prayers and generosity to the poor and needy to be internalised and be with us for all time. That way we will be more spiritually and socially fulfilled.

“He, again, appeals to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements, or actions that could aggravate the spread of the virus and tension in the country.

“Gov Abiodun states that we should all agree that the new normal is to stay at home and live where the pandemic meets us.

“Travelling across States could affect public health negatively now, and aggravate tension, even after we would have defeated COVID-19.

“He wishes us all Happy Eid-el-Fitri”, the statement concludes.
