Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Terkula Igidi

The Chair­man of Bwari Area Coun­cil, Mr Musa Dikko, has urged Mus­lims to pray for peace and pros­per­ity of the coun­try as they cel­e­brate this year’s Sal­lah.

In his Sal­lah mes­sage, the chair­man said that the coun­try was go­ing through hard times and needed fer­vent prayers.

“Times are hard now and it is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult for gov­ern­ments, at all lev­els, to ex­e­cute the so­cial con­tracts they en­tered into with the masses. At a time like this, when Mus­lim ummah are cel­e­brat­ing Eid elFitr, we need prayers for peace and pros­per­ity.”

He said that when the coun­try pros­pered, stan­dards of liv­ing would im­prove, gov­ern­ments would pay salaries promptly and ex­e­cute in­fras­truc­tural projects.

He ap­pealed to the peo­ple of Bwari to be pa­tient with his ad­min­is­tra­tion while he tried to im­prove rev­enue of the coun­cil.

He also urged res­i­dents in the area to be law abid­ing dur­ing the the Sal­lah cel­e­bra­tions.
