AS WE CELEBRATE EID-EL-KABIR: I WISH US MANY MORE YEARS OF ALLAH’S AWESOMENESS
No doubt, this year’s edition of the Eid-el-Kabir is historically remarkable for all of us Muslim faithful and non-Muslim alike across the globe. For many of us, it is the first time we will observe the Eid prayers in the comfort and confines of our different homes: no thanks to the ravaging COVID-19.
Our solace and singular source of comfort is that as many as those it has felled, we have only used our ears to receive the news as our loved ones and ourselves are saved by Almighty Allah, (SWT). It is therefore essential that we praise Allah’s name for His benevolence and compassion for sparing our lives to see another Eid-el-Kabir, while at the same time, we identify with those outside our vicinity who might have lost loved ones.
Dear Constituents, 2020 is already in its second half with the virus almost hijacking government’s plans, programmes and activities. You will recall that governments across all strata have to cut down the 2020 annual budget; an economic decision with mean effects. It is however my joy to report that in spite of COVID-19 stifling programmes and agenda of government at all levels, I, Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid (ATTACKER have made feasible and realizable my major Constituency Projects across our Federal Constituency to the applause and commendation of all.
Beyond the various projects, some of which are already completed while many are ongoing, we have made far-reaching interventions and financial assistance for groups and individuals. We are resolved to never look back or be unreachable to our people whose mandate we are enjoying.
In due course, we shall be interfacing with our adorable Constituents in order to reel out our report cards in the last one year and give feedback in order to engender confidence and their support in our collective bid to leave Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency better than we met it. In due time, Town hall meetings shall be organized in all the three local Government areas that make up our Federal Constituency.
As we celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, it is expedient that we all should err on the side of caution as we go about enjoying the festivity. Let us not forget that the pandemic has found its way into our communities, hence we must observe the protocols to the fullest by wearing our face masks, maintaining the stipulated physical distancing, washing our hands at intervals, immediately reporting at the nearest Centre if we observe unusual conditions, and above all, we should remember our Federal Constituency, our dear State, Nigeria and indeed the world in our prayers so that Almighty Allah, will help us rid our world of this faceless killer.
May the peace that is associated with Almighty Allah continue to abide with all of us now and always.
Happy Eid-el-Kabir, my wonderful people
Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid (ATTACKER)
Deputy Minority Whip
