As the Muslim world completes the month of _Ramadan_ , dedicated to fasting, prayers and almsgiving, I am pleased to send warm gre etings to the _Ummah_ on this occasion of _Eid-el-Fitr._

_Eid_ marks a new beginning for each individual, and in spite of the Covid-19 crisis being experienced at this time, we should still hope for the blessings of renewed faith that come with it.

I pray to Almighty Allah to grant us His guidance, safeguard our faith, heal our land, strengthen our solidarity and make the world a prosperous and peaceful one.

I commend President Muhammadu Buhari, the President of the Senate, Sen.Ahmad Lawan and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila for their unique leadership and harmonious relationship so far in the attempts being made to curtail the spread of coronavirus as well as providing succour to the citizenry.

My prayer is that those who are sick will recover very soon and those who lost their loved ones will be comforted by the Almighty Allah.

Finally, I wish that our lives will glorify the Almighty and give joy to those around us as I send my best wishes to you all.

May the blessings you received during this _Ramadan_ be with you and your families in this world and the hereafter.

_Eid Mubarak_ !

Prof. Abubakar O. Sulaiman
