Sustain Ramadan virtues to guarantee national cohesion – Gov. Idris urges Muslims

The Kebbi State Governor, Comrade Dr Nasir Idris, Kauran Gwandu, has urged Muslims to sustain the good virtues of Ramadan to facilitate national cohesion.

In his Eid-el-Fitr message to the good people of Kebbi State, the governor observed that if the lessons learnt during the Holly Month of Ramadan were sustained and put to use, “many of our challenges would have been solved.”

He said Ramadan taught people to be patient, tolerant, accommodative and above all, to be steadfast in repentance and seeking divine intervention in all aspects of human endeavours.

Gov. Idris said Ramadan remained the exalted month in the Islamic calendar, “a month in which the Glorious Qur’an was revealed and a month which its begining is Allah’s mercy, its middle is Allah’s forgiveness and its end is Allah’s freedom from hell fire.

“We pray to be among those who earned Allah’s mercy, forgiveness and has freed all of us from hell fire. May He accept all our deeds and make us among the dwellers of Aljannatul Firdaus.”

While congratulating Muslim Ummah for witnessing yet another Eid-el-Fitr, the governor advised them to celebrate the festive period with caution especially in this difficult situation.

Gov. Idris promised to sustain the delivery of dividends of democracy to the good people of Kebbi State through the execution of projects that have direct bearing to the lives of generality.

“My mission and vision is to transform Kebbi to be at par with other states of the federation, this, we have started and In Sha Allah we will continue until we accomplish our mission.

“Every citizen of this state can attest to the fact that Birnin Kebbi has started wearing a new outlook following developmental projects spread across the state capital, apart from other projects across the four Emirates in the state,” he noted.

According to him, spreading the projects across is with a view to giving all emirates a sense of belonging.

He added that the present administration was not unmindful of the importance of human development through empowerment, thereby accord special priority to it.

“Concerned by the apparent difficulties that engulfed the citizens, the governor in this Ramadan period purchased and distributed over 200 trucks of assorted grains to ameliorate the present hardship,” he said.
