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 nationâ€, 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.
