From Lawal Sa’idu Funtua Katsina
Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has felicitated with Muslims over the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.
A statement signed by the governor’s spokesman, Alhaji Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, Masari urged them to make a life habit of the lessons the month of Ramadan teaches.
“Having gone through the fasting period in devotion, obedience, charity, perseverance and respect for others.” , Governor Masari said He added “these traits should be a life time habit that should outlive the limited period which the Ramadan fast was observed.”
He stressed that these virtues should also form the foundation upon which Muslims and adherents of other faiths anchor their affairs and conduct with and among each other.
Masari said, “a life of devotion limited in time and scope could only be but of momentary utility to the larger society, unless there is conscious effort to sustain the positive narrative by all at all times.
Confronted with threatening challenges, Governor Masari said Nigeria and the leadership were in dire need of our collective goodwill in prayers, action and utterances so that we may together survive the adversity and move the nation in the right direction.
The Governor is particularly full of praise for the non-Muslims who became their brothers keepers by joining in feeding the indigent fasting Muslims in many parts of the country, saying that this is exactly the attitude that we should strive to imbibe to make our country great and shame the enemies of Nigeria’s progress.
The Katsina State Governor also assured that the APC government at both state and federal levels would continue to do even more for the people, saying that in President Muhammadu Buhari is a leader who leads by example and walks his talks in fulfillment of the promises made to the people.
