The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has felicitated with all residents of the Federal Capital Territory, especially the Muslim Ummah on the celebration of Eid-El-Fitr.

While congratulating them on the successful completion of 30 days of Ramadan which involved   fasting, prayers and charity, he charged them to see it as an opportunity to thank Almighty Allah and pray that all their supplications to Him will be favourably received.

He noted that it was indeed gratifying to witness residents of the FCT reaching out to the less privileged members of the society regardless of ethnicity or religion in the spirit of oneness and caring for one another.  “I urge you to continue to practice the lessons learnt during Ramadan in order to strengthen the bond of brotherhood and unity.  Let us be reminded that the Federal Capital Territory was built on a foundation of national unity with the strong conviction of our founding fathers that it is only when we stay together and work together, with a single purpose, that we can truly reach our potentials as a great nation,” he said.

He also urged them to stand firm and resolute against divisive and unpatriotic elements in the society who do not wish Nigeria well.   “Let us also remain vigilant and be security conscious at all times. Report to the security agencies all suspicious movements and characters in our communities and be more discerning with information that you imbibe or share especially from the social media,” he added.

Malam Bello promised that the FCT Administration will continue, in collaboration with the various security agencies, to put measures in place to safeguard the lives and properties of all residents of the FCT.
