Misilli said the Governor enjoined Muslims to sustain their prayers for the peace, security and prosperity of the state and the nation at large, especially the new dispensation.

He said Governor Inuwa Yahaya, who doubles as the Chairman of the Northern States Governors’ Forum, urged the Muslim ummah to use the occasion to extend hands of support and show love and good neighbourliness as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and upheld by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The Governor was quoted as saying, “As we celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festival, I want to admonish us to reflect on the message and lessons of the season which teaches total submission, obedience and selflessness. We must also imbibe the tenets of Islam which promote peace, tolerance, modesty, and love.

“I also enjoin us all to continue to make sacrifices for the growth and development of our dear state great country, especially at this critical time”.

The statement added that the Governor appreciated the traditional institution, community and religious leaders, and the entire people of Gombe state for their support and understanding while reiterating his administration’s resolve to continue to provide quality leadership and consolidate on the gains so far recorded for a better tomorrow.
