Labour Party (LP) has felicitated with Muslims all over Nigeria for the successful conclusion of the Ramadan Fasting which usher the celebration of Eid el Fitr.

In a release signed by the National Secretary of the party, Alhaj Umar Farouk Ibrahim, he said the celebration is coming at the time when Nigeria is passing through myriad of challenges: insecurity, hunger, poverty, unemployment, high rate of inflation, to mention but few. 

"Bandits have taken over different part of the country to the extent that citizens are kidnapped,  extorted and murdered everyday. Students are kidnapped in various schools. Some are killed and some parents are forced to pay huge ransom to secure the lives of their wards. The Boko Haram insurgents are currently hosting their flags in some part of the country.

"The economy of the country is collapsing resulting in the high rate of in security. Farmers no longer access their farms in fear of being kidnapped or killed.

"The rate of inflation is increasing on a daily basis and has made it impossible for many Nigerians to live a worthy life. Thus making it impossible for them to afford basic needs. 

"It is our believe that Almighty Allah will answer the prayers rendered by our Muslim faithfuls during the Ramadan Fasting to restore peace, justice and equity to our country. 

"We pray that Almighty Allah will touch the hearts of our leaders to do the right thing. Give them the political will, courage and the patriotism to decisively fight the insecurity and economic challenges threatening the cooperate existence of our country, Nigeria".
