From Muhammad Ibrahim, Kaduna
Kaduna state governor, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero has felicitated with all Muslim faithful as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitr marking the end of Ramadan, as he urged them to pray for peace and against insecurity in the state.
In a statement, signed by the Director-General, Media and Publicity to the Governor, Malam Ahmed Maiyaki, Gov Yero said ‘our prayer is that may Allah (SWT) accept all our acts of worship during the holy period and may He also forgive us our shortcomings and reward us with Paradise in the hereafter’.
He also called on Muslims to uphold the spirit of brotherhood of mankind as enjoined by Allah in the Glorious Qur’an through promoting peace, unity and progress in the entire Globe.
“Aggression is un-Islamic, because the paramount obligation on all Muslims is ‘As Sabr’- Patience. I, therefore, call on all Muslims all over the country to sustain prayers and to be genuinely committed towards resolving the current state of insecurity plaguing our great nation, especially in some parts of the North.
“Muslims should lead the way in our quest to build a peaceful, united and prosperous Nigeria’ Gov Yero urged.
