Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has urged all Muslims to ensure that the lessons they learnt during Ramadan and their devotion remained a consistent way of life even after the 30-day exercise.

Bello noted yesterday that Ramadan was a season of several teachings that centred on humanity, kindness, peace and love, which, if imbibed, would solve many of the country’s problems.


He felicitated with all Muslims all over the country, particularly in Kogi, on the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan, praying God to keep everyone, who witnessed the end, in strength and health.

The governor used the opportunity to harp on the gains of peaceful co-existence and national integration, noting that Nigeria was better as a united entity.

Also Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, congratulated the Muslim community on the celebration, praying God to reward the faithful for the fast and devotion, as well as almsgiving before, during and after the holy month.


The governor stated yesterday: “The month of Ramadan afforded the faithful another opportunity of spiritual rejuvenation through fasting, devotion, leniency and kindness towards the weak, and multiple earning of rewards by supporting the poor and the vulnerable.”

I pray Almighty Allah to grant us the rewards in manifolds.

“Going forward, and in the spirit of the holy month we have just exited, I implore everyone to continue to pray and work for peace and tranquillity in our country and our state, while the government and citizens play their respective roles to build a better society.”
