Ramadan: Conoil Preaches Tolerance, Harmony Amongst Nigerians

As Muslims faithful all over the world celebrate the end of the 30-days fasting period, the Management of Conoil Plc has enjoined Muslims in Nigeria to use the occasion to promote peace and unity in the country, which are key ingredients required to tackle the myriad of socio-economic challenges confronting the nation.

In message to commemorate this year's Eid-el-Fitri celebrations, Conoil stated that after weeks undergoing spiritual rejuvenation, Muslims, and Nigerians in general must ensure that they put into practice the great lesson of sacrifice, forgiveness of sins and giving succor to the poor and the needy, which were the hall mark of the period, in order to bring a positive change and move the country forward.

"Ramadan signifies holiness, and as we celebrate the abundant blessings of Allah on mankind, let us as Nigerians promote peace, tolerance and harmony amongst each other as the country wades through the current economic recession," the frontline major oil marketer stated.

The company also seized the occasion to advise Nigerians to be conscious of their safety on the roads as they journey to visit family and friends by adhering strictly to road safety regulations.

It urged motorists to keep a rein on their speed, obey traffic rules, wear seat belts, read caution signs and ensure their vehicles are in good condition, electrically and mechanically, before embarking on their trips.
