Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has appealed to residents of the state to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness, love, and respect for one another.

In his Sallah message, the governor expressed the belief that the lessons learnt during the month of Ramadan would continue to guide actions and utterances after the holy month.

The governor said, “We should also use the occasion to reflect on our past activities and see how we fared spiritually so that we can take corrective measures towards improving our relationship with Allah (SWT), fellow Muslim Ummah, and adherents of other faiths. We should emulate Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by making sacrifices for the benefit of the less-privileged ones in our society.

“We should also pray to Almighty Allah for peace, unity, and prosperity of our dear state and the country as a whole.

“Our government is irrevocably committed to the continued peaceful coexistence among the heterogeneous ethnic and religious groups in the state. I appeal for your continued understanding, cooperation, and support towards the realisation of this noble objective.”

Also, Taraba State governor, Dr Agbu Kefas, said the nation needs prayers and selfless service by both the leadership and the followership to overcome all the challenges.

He stressed that Taraba State is strengthened by the diversity across tribes and faiths, saying with unity, the state can do more in the area of development and progress.

The governor assured that his administration would continue to carry everyone along, irrespective of their faiths or ethnicity in the distribution of the dividends of democracy.

He said the administration was not leaving any stone unturned in the provision of security and the fight against poverty and hunger.
