” Let us continue to practice the lesson of tolerance, perseverance, and love for our neighbours that we learned during the Ramadan. Let us also learn to always follow the path of dialogue in resolving our differences rather than advocating for violence.

” We must all understand that our strength as a people revolves around our diversity. Hence, we must do all that we can to ensure that we manage this diversity to build a strong, economically viable, politically stable and prosperous Nigeria.

He reminded the muslim faithfuls to understand the essence of the celebration of Eid, which is about sacrifice, love, and hope for a peaceful coexistence in our dear Senatorial District, the State and the country in general.
