Fayemi greets Muslims at Sallah
EKITI State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has felicitated with Muslim faithful in the country and all over the world on the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitri.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, Fayemi expressed joy on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast by Muslims. He explained that witnessing another Eid-el-Fitri is a special privilege from the Almighty Allah who has control over the destiny of man.
The governor said the 30-day spiritual exercise has drawn the faithful closer to Allah, while urging them to keep on practising the lessons learnt from the holy month in their relationship with their Maker and fellow human beings.
He also urged the citizens to be vigilant and remain security conscious even as they celebrate, noting that the recent spate of bomb attacks and general insecurity in the country has made it imperative for Muslims and adherents of other religions to seek the face of God in prayer for divine intervention in the affairs of the country.
Flaying the killing of scores of Nigerians in the various terror attacks in Kaduna and Kano during the week, Fayemi said the prayer of the faithful is needed more than ever for God’s guidance for the country’s leaders to have the right approach towards ending the nefarious activities of the insurgents.
Condemning the attack on former Head of State and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, Fayemi said had the terrorists succeeded in killing Gen. Buhari, the incident would have precipitated a chain of reactions, an end of which nobody could predict.
Noting that Muslims and adherents of other religions in the State have always lived together in peace and harmony, the governor urged continued peaceful coexistence among the people of the State.
