The All Progressives Congress (APC) has restated the commitment of the federal government to secure the nation from all fifth columnists and secessionist elements who have continued to seek ways of dragging the nation backward.
The National Secretary of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the party, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, stated this in statement issued yesterday in Abuja.
The ruling party said it celebrateed with Muslim faithful and entire Nigerians on the occasion of this year's Eid-el-Fitr, after the 30 days of abstinence from worldly pleasures and utmost devotion to the Almighty Allah.
The party enjoined Nigerians to use this period to demonstrate the essence of Ramadan, which is about personal sacrifice and sharing with the less-privileged.
Akpanudoedehe said, "On this day, we assure Nigerians of our commitment to securing the nation from all fifth columnists and secessionist elements who have continued to seek ways of dragging the nation backward."
The party also urged Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for the leaders and the country's peace and development.
The secretary noted that the collective efforts of all were required to ensure that citizens enjoyed the many pro-people developmental strides of the President Muhammadu Buhari's administration in an atmosphere of peace.
The APC, therefore, called on all people of goodwill and patriotic citizens to use the occasion to extend their spiritual support for the efforts of the administration in its continued quest to place the country on the path of economic prosperity.
