Eid-el-Fitri: Bello charges Muslims to enthrone peace

By Sulaiman Achema, Lokoja

Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello has charged Muslims to work towards restoring peace in a world that has been challenged by war and economic instability.Governor Bello in his Eid el Firtr message to Muslim faithful, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo, Bello said Ramadan represents the sacrifice of Muslim faithful to submit to Allah’s will
and pray for peace around the world.

He stated: “We owe the world peace, progress and prosperity. As we made sacrifices during the Ramadan, Muslims should continue to pray for peace around the world because Islam is a religion of peace.

“I also urge Nigerians to support the anti-corruption crusade of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration as every religion abhors corruption and oppression of the poor and the vulnerable segment of the society. The world is looking up to Nigeria to see how we prosecute the anti-graft war”.

The Governor assured the people of Kogi State that he will govern with the fear of Allah who has bestowed leadership on him at this crucial time of the state.

He said, “My election to the position of governorship at a time like this is a call to service by Allah to serve the people of Kogi State with the fear of God and dedication to the ideals that will help build
an egalitarian society. To this, I am resolutely committed.

“I thank the civil servants in the state for their steadfastness and sacrifice throughout the period of the staff verification exercise, which crept into the Ramadan fasting. I feel your pains. I urge you to
consider it the sacrifice that will set our payrolls free from the stranglehold of ghost workers who have made it impossible for our state to move forward.

“Having received the reports of the staff verification committee, we shall swing into action to ensure that your sacrifices are not wasted.
My government will continue to accord labour its due recognition as partners in progress in our effort to broaden our socio-economic frontiers through the New Direction blueprint “.

He urged Muslims to continue to make Ramadan a lifestyle in order to have a better society.
