The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended Nigerians for their sacrifice.

The governing party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in Lagos yesterday, said since sacrifice lies at the core of Eid-el-Kabir, it is pertinent to praise Nigerians for their sacrifices for the emergence of a better country.

“Being the first Eid-el-Kabir to be celebrated since the change train arrived in our country, we thank all our compatriots for their support and personal sacrifice that have seen Nigeria emerging, gradually but steadily, from years of bad governance, impunity, unbridled corruption and neglect of the larger population.

“In particular, we hail our gallant soldiers, many of who have paid the supreme sacrifice, for continuing to stand up for the unity and cohesion of our dear country.

“We assure them of our unqualified support as they remain in battle, even during this moment of celebration, to ensure our safety and security and to crush the terrorists who have killed and maimed many innocent citizens”, it said.

In a related development, the eoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged Nigerians to use the festive period to pray for peace and unity in the country.

The opposition party called for reflection on the virtue of faith, service and total submission to God’s will.

In a statement yesterday by its spokesman Olisa Metuh, PDP said these virtues were exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim, “who was willing to sacrifice his only son, Ismail, in obedience to God’s command”.

The statement added that the occasion provides Nigerians a great opportunity to resubmit to God and commit the nation and its leaders in prayers.
