Ahmed Wadada, Senator-elect for Nasarawa-West Senatorial District, has felicitated Muslim faithful in the state and the country at large for the successful completion of the Ramadan fasting.

Wadada offered his felicitations in his Eid-Fitr (Sallah) goodwill message made available to newsmen on Friday in Keffi, Nasarawa.

The Senator-elect also urged all Muslims to sustain the lessons of the holy month of Ramadan by adhering strictly to the teaching and traditions of Prophet Muhammad.

He emphasised the relevance of tolerance, sacrifice, charity, love, and peaceful coexistence, noting that these were virtues which Muslims and non-Muslims alike must imbibe beyond the month of Ramadan.

“We shouldn’t forget the important lessons of the Ramadan which include sacrifice, charity, piety and enhancing our bond with the poor, vulnerable groups and the less privileged in the society.

“Abstention from food and drinks during the month of Ramadan has made it possible for us to appreciate the situation of the poorest of the poor who go without eating every day.

“We should continue to give more charity to the underprivileged, the poor, persons with disabilities, widows, orphans and other vulnerable groups in our various communities,” he said.

Wadada also urged the Muslim Ummah to use the period of the Eid-Fitr celebration to offer special prayers for Allah’s blessings, wisdom and guidance on the part of the leaders of the country as the nation was passing through the period of transition.

He thanked the people of Nasarawa-West Senatorial District for giving him their mandate in the recently concluded National Assembly elections.

He also assured the people of the senatorial zone of his resolve to build on the success and achievements he recorded 12 years ago when he was a member of the House of Representatives.

Wadada said he would offer quality representation in the Senate.
