Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo state has felicitated with the Muslim faithful on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr celebration and for successfully completing the Ramadan Fast.

In his message to the Muslim community in the country on Saturday, Governor Uzodimma commended them for their resilience, dedication, patience and self-sacrifice in the face of the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the global community. 

While urging the Muslims to depend solely on God in all situation, the Imo governor, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, said God has been merciful to Nigeria and Nigerians and advised the Muslim faithful to remain steadfast in their prayer for a one united, peaceful and prosperous country.

He added that this year's Eid-el-Fitr ceremony, which seemed "marred" by the COVID-19 has provided an opportunity for the Muslim faithful to reflect deeply on the awesomeness of God in the face of predicament and the need for mankind to subject themselves to the sovereignty of God Almighty.

Governor Uzodimma, therefore, advised the Muslim faithful to use this period of Eid-el-Fitr to remember the vulnerable, weak and needy in our midst and to show them love.

He further encouraged them to pray for the leadership of the country so that they will be God-fearing and work in the interest of the society.
