Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has felicitated with Muslims and Nigerians on the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir, saying their sacrifices for divine support will not be in vain.

He stated this yesterday in his Sallah message through a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti.

His words: “The people have made and are making sacrifices as they experience daunting economic, political and social challenges in the country and during the celebration of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.

They are also making spiritual sacrifices to Allah and I pray the sacrifices won’t be in vain.”

Fayose said divine intervention in the country’s affairs was necessary, given the fact that many gains recorded in the past were being eroded speedily.

He appreciated the Muslim community and others in Ekiti for their support over the years, saying he felt honoured to have been elected twice as governor of the state.

“Although this is my last Sallah message as a governor, I am sure that our association has just begun, as I am more than willing to serve you in whatever capacity you deem fit in future and I am hopeful that your will, expressed through the ballot or other means would always prevail,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has granted freedom to 170 prison inmates in the state.

According to a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report, Ganduje, who witnessed the release of the inmates from Goron Dutse Prison yesterday, said the gesture was in the spirit of Eid-El Kabir.

He said that the gesture was to complement Federal Government’s efforts to further reduce congestion in the nation’s prisons.

The governor also disclosed that since the inception of his administration in 2015, no fewer than 2000 inmates have been released.
