The Governor of Anambra State Chief Willie Obiano has exhorted Muslims
to take advantage of the spiritual lessons and blessings of Prophet
Muhammed this Sallah season to promote love and peaceful co-existence
The governor made the call in a special Sallah Message to adherents of
the Islamic faith in the country, which was made available to
HOMELAND NEWS in Awka.
According to him the celebration of Eid-el-Fitri gives Muslims
across the country a veritable opportunity to reflect on the supremacy
of peace in nation building.
According to Gov. Obiano “I urge you to reflect on the deeper meanings of the
teachings of the holy prophet and seek new ways of working for more
peaceful and United Nigeria. No country can experience true progress
without peace. May the teachings of the holy prophet guide our
relationship with one another this Sallah season and always.”
The governor urged Muslims in the state to pray for peace and security
in the country and Anambra State.
“As you celebrate remember to be vigilant. Take note of people and
activities around your neighborhood to ensure noting will breach the
peace and security of our state. May I also assure you that my
administration is committed to providing the enabling environment for
your businesses and economic activities.” Gov. Obiano stated.
