Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura, of Nasarawa State has felicitated with Muslim faithful in the state and the country at large for the commencement of the Ramadan which is aimed at strengthening their devotion to the Almighty Allah.
Al-makura in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Musa Elayo, also urged the entire Muslim Ummah to use the period to pray for continuous unity and peaceful coexistence of the state and the country.
He noted that, the commencement of fasting has yet provided us with rare and unique opportunity to fervently pray over the security situation of the country and call on Allah to help us restore sanity and love among our country men and women.
“The Holy month of Ramadan brings goodwill to mankind by refreshing stronger ties with Allah. I appealed to the religion leaders to preach love, unity and message of reconciliation and avoid attacks on others and not to engage incontroversial issues that are capable of causing disunity in the society”
“Tafsir during this period should be focused on proffering solutions to endemic societal problems and prayers for the nation leaders, preach love to one another including those of other faith as an expression of the life and virtues of the Holy Prophet Muhammadu (S.A.W) as a messenger of Allah”
Al-Makura called on the Muslim faithful to be steadfast with all sense of decorum and modesty by avoiding extravagance and ostentation living during this Holy month of Ramadan.
The statement also called on all and sundry to continue to support the effort of the administration to improve the living condition of the people.
