According to him, no society can developed in an atmosphere of rancor and violence, hence the need for people to embrace peace and tolerate each other irrespective of religion, ethnic or political differences.
Sule noted that Nigerians, especially Muslim faithfuls, should sustain the peaceful atmosphere being enjoyed in the last 30 days of Ramadan.
According to him, for the past 30 days, Muslims all over the world have observed the fast in the sacred month of Ramadan in compliance with the Islamic injunction.
“As you are all aware, fasting in the month of Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, aimed at strengthening our faith through spiritual engagements such as abstinence from eating, drinking and satisfying other desires from sunset to dawn.
“It also involves intense prayers, recitation and interpretation of the Holy Qur’an, as well as increased acts of kindness, charity and humility, among other moral virtues.
“I implore all Muslims to remain steadfast in applying the virtues of Ramadan through sustained supplication, hospitality and good neighbourliness for the overall peace, security and economic prosperity,” he added.
“Some of these decisions could be interpreted as causing hardship, but they were taken to protect the entire people of the state.
“I thank the people of the state for your support to my government throughout the period of the pandemic and I want you to sustain the support to enable us defeat the virus from the state,” Sule added.
The governor has also called on Nigerians to continue to pray and support President Muhammadu Bahari’s led administration to succeed.
Sule noted that Mr President has been working assiduously in the last five years to reposition and transform the country hence the need for all to support him.
The governor also promised to complete all projects started by the previous administrations in the state to avoid wasting government’s resources.
He explained that government is a continuum and a lot of government resources had been spent on those projects hence our desire to complete them as well as embarking on fresh once. .
