Ortom, Amosun, Ahmed urge greater patriotism, peaceful coexistence
Ortom, who made the call yesterday during Eid-el-Kabir celebration, reminded them of the challenges and obstacles the state is facing in the areas of security and economy, stating that Benue needs renewed commitment among its people to overcome the challenges.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, he advised political leaders and party supporters to rise above divisive, unedifying and selfish interests, as politicking ahead of the 2019 general elections beckons.
He enjoined every Benue man and woman to commit themselves to the sustenance of democracy, as well as economic and political stability, which are essential for good governance, growth and development of the state and country.
However, Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, yesterday charged Muslims to pray for peaceful co-existence and unity among Nigerians, as they mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.
He gave the charge at the Lantoro Muslim Praying Ground in Abeokuta, where hundreds of Muslim adherents converged for prayers.
He urged Muslim faithful to focus more on praying for peace and harmony, which will ensure progress and development of the country, insisting that they must maintain a peaceful relationship with others, especially their Christian counterparts.
Meanwhile, Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has felicitated with Muslims on the occasion of the Eid-el-Kabir festival, wishing all and sundry peaceful and happy celebrations.
