The honorable member representing Ankpa, Omala and Olamaboro Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Abdullahi Ibrahim Ali(Halims) has congratulated Muslims in Ankpa, Omala and Olamaboro federal Constituency for been alive to witness this year’s Ramadan fast, urging all to offer special prayers during the Ramadan period in view of total healing and global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
The Federal lawmaker in a statement released on Thursday night, as reads in part, noted that as Muslim faithful worldwide undergo the “spiritual purification of the annual Ramadan fast, against the background of the world challenges of fighting coronavirus disease,” they should rededicate themselves to the virtues of the religion by praying fervently and giving alms to the needy.
He seized the opportunity of the commencement of the Ramadan fast to reassure the good people of His federal Constituency that His stewardship will continue to work tirelessly so as to redefine leadership and make impacts that are poised to positively affect lives across the Constituency.
Halims further appealed to his constituents not to succumb to despair, but to maintain steadfast in the firm conviction that through collective effort, preventive measures and the prayers of all faith adherents, the world will overcome the pandemic cum economic retrogressions caused by coronavirus.
While rounding up, He admonished well to do Muslims, to engage in fuller measure of piety, tolerance, kind gestures, fairness and sympathy for the less privileged which the Holy month promotes.
