The Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria (OMPAN) has congratulated Muslim faithful on the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri which followed the successful observance of the month long Ramadan fast.
OMPAN in a statement by its Ogun State Secretary, Michael-Azeez Ogunsiji, 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.
The online media practitioners also enjoined 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.
The association said Nigeria’s greatest challenges as a nation are insecurity and economic crises, calling for the need for both government officials and those who voted them into office to co-operate in solving these problems.
While felicitating with Muslims on the completion of the spiritual exercise during the Ramadan, OMPAN however urged them not to relent in displaying the discipline, restraint, discretion, piety and good neighbourliness which which were very obvious during the fasting period.
