Carry on with Ra­madan lessons — Gaidam

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

Gov­er­nor Ibrahim Gaidam of Yobe State has urged Mus­lims to con­tinue to im­bibe the lessons of Ra­madan, say­ing the month-long fast­ing which just ended should be a com­pass for good con­duct al­lyear long.

“One of the lessons we have learnt from Ra­madan fast­ing is to con­tinue to demon­strate un­der­stand­ing and tol­er­ance to­wards our neigh­bours and show com­pas­sion to those in need…We should use this for sober re­flec­tion and an as­sess­ment of our con­duct and to en­sure that our con­duct con­forms to the no­ble teach­ings of the Qur’an and Sun­nah of the Prophet (SAW )”, he said.

The gov­er­nor, who spoke yes­ter­day in an eid-el- fitr mes­sage to the peo­ple of the state, also called on the peo­ple to con­tinue to work to­gether ‘for the at­tain­ment of a more pros­per­ous fu­ture for the state and the coun­try in gen­eral’. Speak­ing about the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the state, Gov­er­nor Gaidam ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the Buhari-led fed­eral gov­ern­ment for the sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the state.
