Sen. Istifanus Gyang, (lateau North) has urged Muslims to imbibe the godly virtues learnt during the Ramadan as they celebrated Eid-el-Fitr.
Gyang in a goodwill message by his Special Assistant on Media and Protocol, Musa Ashoms, on Saturday in Jos, said that the period called for sober reflection on the lessons learnt.
“The Ramadan period is one for self examination, instilling godly fear, penance, avoidance of evil in thought and action, sharing and caring, seeking peace and doing good works among other godly virtues,” he said.
Gyang, who is also the Deputy Chairman, Senate Committee on Defence, wished the Muslim Ummah the corresponding blessings of Ramadan which culminated in the Eid-el-Fitr prayers.
The lawmaker while wishing the Muslim faithful a solemn and blessed Eid-el-Fitr celebration, urged them to comply with all the preventive protocols of COVID-19.
