The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has felicitated with Muslims on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitr celebrations which marked the end of Ramadan.
This was contained in a statement signed by Chairman, Contact and Mobilization Committee, and member, Steering Committee, CUPP, Rev. Olusegun Peters.
TheFact Nigeria learned that the Coalition urged all Nigerians to pray for the countr, saying, “with our collective efforts, we shall make Nigeria great again”.
Rev. Peters said: “There is no doubt that the month-long fasting afforded our Muslim brothers and sisters the opportunity to rededicate themselves to God and prayed for the nation in this period of political upheavals, economic recession, social discontent, religious disharmony and insecurity across the country.
“CUPP enjoins Nigerians to imbibe the virtues of love, peace, tolerance, forgiveness and hard work as we renew our faith in the fatherland and build a strong, united, progressive and decent democratic society.
“The state of the nation is very bad. Nigeria is at a crossroads of its existence with unprecedented insecurity and bloodshed across the country.
“The people have lost confidence in governments at all levels as the nation has been turned to a killing field by terrorists, insurgents, militants, bandits, gunmen, hoodlums and kidnappers.
“The citizens are no longer safe, security agents are killed daily, private and public buildings set ablaze, and a security breach at the supposed impenetrable Aso Rock, where the residence of the Chief of Staff to the President, Professor Ibrahim Gambari was burgled on Monday 10th May 2021, it is indeed a trying time for our nation”.
