 President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has congratulated Muslim faithful on the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri which followed the successful observance of the month long Ramadan fast.

Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the prayers and sacrifices of the Muslim ummah during the period contributed greatly to the relative peace witnessed across the country in the last one month.

He urged all Nigerians to seize the momentum of the completion of this year's Ramadan to work for sustainable peace, security and economic well-being of the country.

Saraki said: “Our greatest challenges as a nation are insecurity and economic crises. And there is need for both government officials and those who voted them into office to co-operate in solving these problems.

“On the security front, even though we acknowledge that new threats have continued to emerge, we believe that our security forces have all it takes to nip them in the bud in due course.

“This is the more reason why all hands must be on deck to ensure the full restoration of lasting peace and security across the country. This, I believe, will provide a conducive business environment that would encourage investments – through which jobs and better opportunities for our people will be created.

“Winning the war on insecurity can only come from the collective efforts of all Nigerians through cooperation with security forces in supplying timely intelligence that would aid them in their job of protecting lives and property across the country.”

While felicitating with Muslims on the completion of the spiritual exercise during the Ramadan, Saraki urged them not to relent in displaying the discipline, restraint, discretion, piety and good neighbourliness which were very obvious during the fasting period.

He further urged Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for the peaceful coexistence of all Nigerians and to be their brother’s keeper at all times.
