The Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has urged Muslim faithful to be security conscious during and after the Sallah festive period.
Ganduje made the call in his sallah message contained in a statement signed by the State Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba.
He said though Buhari-led administration had recorded impressivesuccesses in the fight against insurgency and other security challenges, there was the need for people to remain extra-vigilant and conscious of suspicious movements during and after the festivities.
While wishing all Muslims happy and peaceful Eid-El-Kabir celebration,
Ganduje urged them to maintain cleanliness as they slaughter and prepare their sacrificial animals.
He also called on them to be cautious of what they eat to avoid contracting avoidable diseases.
The governor has reiterated the commitment of his administration to ensure good health for the people and clean environment, demonstrated in the recent employment of over 2, 000 health workers and 1, 000 sanitary inspectors by the state government.
He also prayed for the safe return of pilgrims who went to Hajj, just as he called for continuous prayers and support for President
Muhammadu Buhari, who just returned from London, on medical vacation.
He, however, emphasized the determination of his administration to continue to improve the wellbeing of the people through policies and projects that have direct impact on the people.
