The minister of the Federal Capital Territory ,FCT, malam Muhammad Bello has called on the residents to stand firm and resolute against divisive and unpatriotic elements in the society who do not wish the country well.
In Bello’s message to congratulate Muslim Ummah on the successful completion of 30 days of 2021 Ramadan, he urged them to continue to practice the lessons learnt during Ramadan in order to strengthen the bond of brotherhood and unity.
The minister in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary ,CPS, Anthony Ogunleye, reminded that the Federal Capital Territory was built on a foundation of national unity with the strong conviction of the 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.
According to the statement, ” 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.
“We should therefore stand firm and resolute against divisive and unpatriotic elements in our society who do not wish us well as a nation and as a people by continuing to care for each other irrespective of ethnic or religious differences.
“It is therefore an opportunity to thank Almighty Allah for the successful completion of this religious obligation and pray that our supplications to Him will be favourably received”
The statement explained 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.
