Member representing Gombi/Hong Federal Constituency, Rt. Hon. Yusuf Buba, on Monday, congratulated the entire Muslim Ummah on the completion of the Ramadan season and the celebration of this year’s Eid-El Fitri.

Buba, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Foreign Affairs, also felicitated with his constituents on the occasion. 

In a release personally signed by him and made available to newsmen by Nkem Anyata-Lafia, his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs in Abuja, the lawmaker praised the resilience of the Muslim faithful for the unwavering commitment and sacrifice, which marked the month-long Ramadan season that has culminated in the Eid celebration. 

While praying the Almighty Allah to accept all acts of worship that went with the period, he admonished all not to lose sight of the lessons of the period.

He stressed that the period must afford everyone “a greater commitment to unity with our neighbours, peace in our country and love in our society.

“As beneficiaries of Allah’s rich blessings and forgiveness of all forms of filth, we must exemplify the love that we have received from Allah by choosing only lifestyles, attitudes and words that build society,that elicit the best in our neighbours and encourage others to emulate all that we represent at this time.

“Our communities, country and ,indeed, the entire world will become better when we tend to relate with everyone around us as brothers and sisters without considering the language they speak, the faith they profess as well as the part of the world from which they hail.”

 According to him, attention to the things that divide us can only make our minds clannish and little. 
“It can only bring negative feelings borne from a sense of inferiority or superiority complex that, eventually, succeed in making us strangers to one another.

“It is quite remarkable that this year’s Eid-El Fitri is being celebrated at a time the world is exiting the narrow social community in which the COVID 19 pandemic had hitherto quarantined us all. 
“Surely, there is so much to be glad for in that respect,” he said.
