Kano state governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has congratulated Muslims on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast and the eid el fitr celebration
He specifically congratulates the five First Class Emirs of Kano, Bichi, Karaye, Rano and Gaya Emirates for a successful completion of one of the Five Pillars of Islam, explaining that, as leaders of their domains they also need to be congratulated.
“We saw how these leaders sailed through with their subjects in guiding them towards exhibition of good virtues and traits while worshipping our Creator, Allah,” he says.
This was contained in a statement issued by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Abba Anwar on Monday night.
It said the governor appreciated the show of good virtues by Muslims during the Month of Ramadhan. Calling on all “…to maintain the good virtues that were inculcated into their minds and exhibited through good behaviour and manners, that culminated from the teachings of the religious practice of Ramadhan.”
“During our days in the Month of Ramadhan it appeared to all how people became more of their brother’s keepers. This and many other decent characters need to be maintained. So that people get overhaul of their general behaviour,” Ganduje added.
He commended residents for praying hard for the peace and tranquillity of Kano state in particular and the country in general. Saying that, “We are aware how patriotic our people were, and still are, in praying for the peaceful coexistence in our state and corporate existence of our dear nation.”
Ganduje says, as he took the second Oath of Office as the governor of Kano, during the Month of Ramadhan, he hopes and assures that, he starts with sound and blissful footing. “With Allah’s power we shall have peaceful and productive second tenure,” he adds.
Praying that, “By the special Grace of Allah, our state will continue to be and remain peaceful, more developmental projects and programmes will come our way and security situation in the country will improve.”
