In his Goodwill Message to Muslim Faithful in Nigeria on behalf of the State Legislature,Rt.Hon.Udeze noted that as Ramadan symbolizes holiness, dedication to worship and charity work, Muslims should stick to the essence of the Feast by exhibiting those virtues that will further unite the people and uplift the Nation at all times.

Rt.Hon.Udeze expressed the hope that with fervent prayers from the Muslims and other religions groups as well as sincerity and uprightness on the part of the political leaders,the current economic and security challenges confronting the country will be surmounted.

The Speaker assured that the State Legislature will continue to enact laws and resolutions aimed at promoting peaceful coexistence, development of the State as well as the well-being of the citizens and urged Muslims in the state to continue to operate within the laws of the state and enjoy the hospitality of Ndi Anambra.
