Let’s Sustain The Sense of Community Built During Ramadan – Gov Sani

I wish to felicitate with my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in Kaduna State, Nigeria and across the globe on the joyous occasion of Eid-El-Fitr, the celebration of end of the Ramadan fasting, one of the five pillars of Islam.

The Ramadan period afforded the Muslim faithful the world over the opportunity to demonstrate the values of charity, compassion and cooperation, as well as reflect, seek forgiveness, and show gratitude to Almighty Allah for His countless blessings. It renewed, among the faithful, a strong sense of community as people gathered in mosques and community spaces to share iftar meals with their neighbours. As we celebrate the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr, I urge the Muslim faithful to imbibe in their daily lives the lessons of Ramadan, which includes self-control, discipline, sacrifice, perseverance, and total devotion to the will of Almighty Allah.

I call on all Nigerians to use the Eid-el-Fitr celebration to pray for the restoration of peace and security in our communities. May we see the end of terrorism, banditry, insurgency, kidnapping and other forms of violent crime in Nigeria. As Nigerians, we must continue to pray for our leaders and ask Almighty Allah to guide and strengthen them so that they can lead our states and country to the path of progress and sustainable development. Our dear President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR is working very hard to secure the country and stabilize the economy. We must give him all the support and cooperation.

In Kaduna State, we have not wavered in our determination to degrade criminal elements laying siege to our communities. We have forged solid partnerships with federal security forces and strengthened the Kaduna Vigilance Service (KADVS). Working with our dear President, the National Security Adviser and the Nigerian Army, we secured the release of our abducted Kuriga school children. We give Almighty Allah all the glory. We have taken steps to improve internally generated revenue, reduce cost of governance and ensure efficient management of our human and material resources to transform the state.

We are making steady progress. We are determined to change the face of Kaduna State. We want to make rural living a pleasurable experience. We are focused on turning Kaduna State into an international business hub; the investors choice destination. Above all, we are working assiduously to rebuild trust and make our dear state an “oasis of peace and harmony.” To quicken our pace, we require the total commitment and support of our people, and sustenance of the sense of community built during the Ramadan period. May Almighty Allah be our guide as we continue on this journey of restoration.

Happy Eid-El-Fitr

Senator Uba Sani,
Governor, Kaduna State.
