Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has urged all
Nigerians to close ranks and work for the unity,
stability and progress of the nation.
In a message to commemorate this year’s eid-el-fitr
sallah celebration issued in Sokoto by his spokesman,
Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal also enjoined Muslims
to use the opportunity of the end of Ramadan to offer
prayers to God for peaceful co-existence among
different ethno-religious groups in the country.
“Even though the Ramadan period is over, we must
continue to live up to the tenets of our faith through
acts of charity, peaceful coexistence, obedience to
the injunctions of Holy Qu’ran and sacrifice,” the
statement quoted the Governor as saying.
While urging all Nigerians to demonstrate the spirit of
tolerance, unity, forgiveness and compassion to
compatriots, Tambuwal urged Muslims in the country
and beyond to be worthy ambassadors of the faith by
exemplifying all of the virtues that distinguished
Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
“I therefore extend warm greetings to all the people of
our dear State of Sokoto in particular, and Nigerians
in general. I want to reaffirm the commitment of this
administration to uplifting the living standard of our
people, and creating opportunity for them to realize
their objectives as citizens.
“Together, we can make our dear state, and our
country greater,” the Governor added.
