Masari Fe­lic­i­tates With Mus­lims on Ra­madan

THISDAY - - XTRA -

Katsina State gov­er­nor, Al­haji Aminu Bello Masari, has fe­lic­i­tated with Mus­lims on the com­mence­ment of Ra­madan, urg­ing for more com­mit­ment to the cause of the na­tion.

The gov­er­nor, in state­ment signed by his Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant on Me­dia, Abdu Labaran Malum­fashi, called on Mus­lims in the coun­try to make good use of the Holy month of Ra­madan to pray for the na­tion and its lead­er­ship.

He said as a pe­riod of de­vo­tion, there was no bet­ter time to ded­i­cate to Nige­ria's cause than now, in view of the in­se­cu­rity chal­lenges threat­en­ing its cor­po­rate ex­is­tence.

"As a pe­riod of in­tense de­vo­tion and in­tro­spec­tion, it be­hoves on us to use re­li­gion for the ad­vance­ment, not the dis­mem­ber­ment of our na­tion by im­bib­ing the les­sons which the month of Ra­madan seeks to teach us, es­pe­cially show­ing love to one an­other re­gard­less of reli­gious in­cli­na­tion, as­sist­ing the less-priv­i­leged and plac­ing our col­lec­tive in­ter­est over and above in­di­vid­ual con­sid­er­a­tions. We must re­mem­ber that a na­tion is only as good as its lead­er­ship, which means we can­not wish evil for our lead­ers and ex­pect pros­per­ity for the na­tion”, he said. Masari re­it­er­ated that the APC ad­min­is­tra­tion at fed­eral and state lev­els was com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing the cred­i­ble lead­er­ship that would see Nige­ria out of its two most daunt­ing chal­lenges.
