The Acting Governor of Niger State, Ahmed Mohammed Ketso has sued for tolerance, peace and unity among the citizens irrespective of tribal, religious and political affiliations.
Alhaji Ahmed Ketso in his Sallah message enjoined Muslims and non-Muslims alike to practice their religion in line with the teachings of love, unity, peace, sharing, sacrifice and tolerance to all.
He particularly urged Muslims to imbibe the spirit of commitment and loyalty as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim who was commanded by Allah to slaughter his son Ismail.
He said the commandment which was reversed by Allah at the last minute was a test of Prophet Ibrahim’s commitment, loyalty, perseverance and Iman to the cause of Islam and Almighty Allah which serves as a great lesson for Muslims.
While urging the citizens to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Abubakar Bello and all other leaders, the Acting Governor advised them to be security conscious, remain law abiding and report any suspicious persons to the nearest security agency.
He said the administration of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello is more than ever ready to protect the lived and prosperity of every citizen residing in the state. Alhaji Ahmed Ketso wished Muslims a splendid and blissful Eid El-Kabir.
