The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Osun has rejoiced with Muslim faithful for witnessing this year’s Eid el Kabir festival which is one of the important festivals in Islamic calendar.

The party said in this period of renewal of faith and expression of thanksgiving to Allah for witnessing a fruitful Eid el Kabir festival, urging privileged Muslim brothers and sisters to extend their giving hands to the poor and the less privileged people with love as exemplified in the teaching of Islam.

This goodwill message was contained in a statement issued from party’s Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy, and made available to Newsmen on Friday in Osogbo, the state capital.

The release explained that this year’s Eid el Kabir festival is unique in Osun as it is celebrated, few days to the conduct of the governorship election in the state, and urged citizens of the state to vote wisely and re-elect the prudent manager of scarce resources, Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, whose despite the lean allocation coming to Osun, has performed beyond people’s expectations with unprecedented developmental projects in all nooks and crannies of Osun in the last 43 months of his administration.

The APC maintained that despite the fact that Osun is in safe hand of Oyetola led APC government, yet, there are significant degree of political desperation in Osun which requires actions and serious prayers for Osun to remain in safe hand as it is, and continue to thrive in line with the APC programmes and manifestos.

According to the party, “Islam, as a religion that promotes peace and brotherliness, Muslim faithful and believers of other religions of faith should use the opportunity of this period to spiritually communicate with Allah and pray earnestly for peace to reign supreme in Osun before, during and after the July 16 gubernatorial election”.

The party said that sober voices and serious minded fellow are needed to secure the future of the state of Osun for the people of the state, noting that people of the state have to be spiritually fortified and be knowledgeable enough to make right decisions and choices in the July 16 governorship election for the betterment of the state so that the state of Osun will not suffer setback as a result of counter productive actions of nonchalant and looters of yesteryears that are peddling unfounded lies around to mislead the public.

“It is pertinent to also inform the good citizens of Osun that liars and vultures are busy moving around the state to deceive people of Osun by spreading falsehood, and promising what they know that is unattainable”.

Osun APC therefore called on those that have not collected their PVC to do so before it is too late, while wishing Muslim brothers and sisters a happy Sallah celebration.
