Obi gave the admonition in a Sallah message to Muslims in the country on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitr.
He noted that the Holy Month of Ramadan was for all to practice restraint, decorum, and humility. He added that the season also enjoined all faithful to be fair and just in all dealings; to help the needy and heal the ailing; to also promote mutual understanding and peace within communities.

According to him, these injunctions promote the values of universal social justice, world peace, and human progress.

The LP candidate said that Nigeria is going through uncertainties
relating to insecurity, deprivation, unemployment, and most recently, flawed elections arising from the activities of fringe elements, who do not respect the rule of law and the wish of the people.

He noted that they have deployed impunity and exploited the weak national institutions to subvert the will of the people with many untoward activities directed at our people and nation.

The LP flag bearer, however, said that in these “We remain in prayers that these challenges will be overcome without adverse shock to the polity, nation & national interest.”

Obi lamented that he and his Vice, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed have been at the receiving end of the various distinctive allegations and fake news but had in deference to the revered periods of Lent and Ramadan refrained from reacting.

“The most egregious of these acts is the allegation of treason for speaking up and for following due process. It is now common knowledge that perpetrators of state capture and their acolytes continue to attack Datti and I, and indeed, the Labour Party and the Obidient Family, for seeking redress in the court of law to recover our stolen electoral mandate.

“Efforts to dissuade us from pursuing rightful judicial recourse have included state deployment of deep fake audio, identity theft, impersonation, trolls, and fighting words, but In the true spirit of Ramadan, we have remained guided and responsible.

While wishing all Muslim faithful happy Sallah festivity, Obi congratulated them for the successful 30 days of Ramadan fast.

The former Anambra State Governor called on his supporters to remain focused on peace and the rule of law, assuring that “the struggle to reclaim their mandate is in good stead, and on course,” and that a new Nigeria is possible.

“I call on our supporters to remain focused on peace and the rule of law. I also wish to assure Nigerians and the OBIdients that our struggle for a New Nigeria is in good stead, and on course.
“Indeed, be assured that a new Nigeria, that is safe, secure, fair and prosperous for all Nigerians is POssible!

“May Almighty God guide and bless us and bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Obi prayed.
