Some Muslim faithful in the FCT, on Tuesday, said the high costs of ram and other foodstuff will not stop them from celebrating the Eid al-Adha.

They told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that they were eager to partake in the yearly ritual in spite of the economic challenges.

Mr Abdulrahman Kolawole, a civil servant, said he couldn’t afford a ram for the yearly sacrifice, but would join with other relatives to buy a cow that would be shared amicably.

“The most important thing is sharing, giving and caring for your neighbours and people around you. It is a sacrifice that awards blessings if done from the heart.

“The thing is, my family and I are always enthusiastic about this period because it is a time to celebrate and merry together and also to be thankful for Allah’s kindness to humanity.

“So we will celebrate, whether the prices of ram and foodstuff are high or not, we will afford what we can and still merry. Allah is gracious and we are happy,’’ he said.

Kolawole while lamenting over the exorbitant cost of ram and other livestock ahead of the celebration, advised those who could not afford the item to make alternative arrangements based on their might.

Alhaji Yawu Mamman, a business man, said that he had already made provisions for foodstuff ahead of the celebrations for his family.

Mamman said he was able to buy all that his family would need for the celebration in spite of the skyrocketed prices of goods, adding that he could not afford ram because of the price.
