As this year’s, Eid-el-Kabir is celebrated, Governor Samuel Ortom urges Muslims in Benue State to intensify prayers for the unity and peace of the country.
The Governor says there is no alternative to peace, as it is only in an atmosphere devoid of violence that meaningful development takes place.
He says it is the duty of religious organisations to always call on God to intervene in affairs of the country and cause peace to prevail.
The Governor describes as unfortunate, the situation where security operatives have also become victims of attacks, and says the development calls for worry and deserves to be urgently addressed.
Governor Ortom advises Muslims to be tolerant and live harmoniously with people of other faiths and to commit themselves to the Holy Prophet’s injunctions of piety, honesty and charity.
He tasks Benue people in general to commit themselves to the sustenance of democracy as the best form of government, irrespective of its perceived shortcomings.
The Governor wishes the people of the state joyful Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
