Adamawa State Governor, Rt. Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has extended his warmest greetings to the Muslim Ummah across the world and in the State on the occasion of Eid El- Fitr celebrations.
While also congratulating the Ummah for a successful end of fasting in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Governor Fintiri stated that “May Almighty Allah make Eid a great occasion for interaction, harmony, tolerance and happiness for all”.
A statement by Humwashi Wonosikou the governor’s press secretary said, Fintiri who described peace as an essential ingredient to the development of any country, urged citizens and residents of the State to keep praying and working for the peace and unity of the country and Adamawa State.
Glad that the people would be celebrating without the restrictions of COVID-19 this year, Governor Fintiri admonished Nigerians to focus on the things that bind them together and eschew those issues capable of dividing the country especially going into a political year.
He challenged Nigerians to see the nations diversity beyond artificial divisions including ethnic and religious differences in the society and abide strictly by the teachings of the Holy Quran as propagated by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (SAW).
“Sacrifices you have all made during the holy month of Ramadan should draw everyone closer to the Almighty Allah. I enjoin all our Muslim brothers and sisters to draw enduring lessons from the holy Month of Ramadan, which include personal sacrifices and self denial. I call on you to emulate the good virtues and teachings of Prophet Mohammed,” he said.
Governor Fintiri noted that Adamawa is known for peace and therefore enjoined citizens and residents of the State to ensure the hard earned peace is sustained.
“On behalf of my family, the good people and Government of Adamawa State, I heartily felicitate and rejoice with all the citizens and residents of our dear State as we celebrate Eid El-Fitr,” the governor stressed.
