Hon. Jonathan Dabo, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election for Jos-North/Bassa Federal Constituency of Plateau State has called on all Muslim faithful to reflect on the spiritual teachings of their faith, as they celebrate Sallah.
Hon. Dabo, who was a former Chairman of Bassa Local Government in Plateau State, in his Sallah message, while felicitating with the Muslim Ummah, congratulated them for a successful completion of the Ramadan fasting.
“As you complete one of the major five pillars of Islam through fasting, I pray the reward come upon you all”. Hon. Dabo stated.
Adding that, “the significance of the celebration is not limited to having completed the fasting. The Ramadan exercise calls for a total reminder of the spiritual principles of Islam and to be steadfast in the pursuit to attain piety, Allah spiritual rejuvenation and favour”.
Hon. Jonathan Dabo. In his message, which he personally signed, also advised Nigerian Muslims that, “though this year’s Eid-al-fitr is coming at a time when Nigeria is undergoing serious security challenges, where lives and properties of citizens are affected, with a large number of people struggling to survive the scourge of poverty and covid-19 pandemic, the need to eschew violence and ensure that there is peaceful celebration across Plateau State and its environs should be paramount.”
