Speaking to Muslims in his Eid-el-Fitri message, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdulwahab Oba, Governor Ahmed said beyond festivity, they should pray for the restoration of peace in the country.
The governor noted that if Muslims do not imbibe the lessons as a life-long experience, the exercise would have be a futile one.
“As Muslims,we must sustain our devotion to Allah, uphold the teachings of the Quran and Prophet Muhammed.
‘’It is also important that those in authority translate the culture of piety, devotion and submission to the will of Allah into ensuring a society free of want, poverty and hunger”, he said.
