STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS
…Ugwuanyi harps on peace, love, unity, progress
…Mbah promises religious harmony, inclusion
As Muslims celebrate Eid-el-Fitr, to mark the end of Ramadan, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Enugu state Governor-Elect, Dr. Peter Mbah have congratulated Muslims in the state, Nigeria and the world.
In their separate statements made available to Pacesetter, Ugwuanyi called on Nigerians to see the celebration as a morale booster in the nation’s quest for peace, unity and progress, adding that the inherent benefits from the spiritual rebirth offered by the fast are enormous and compelling, while Mbah who urged the Muslim Ummah to continue to sustain the spirit of Ramadan which encapsulates peace, love, unity, progress, neighborliness, development and nation-building, promised that his administration would run governance of inclusiveness, encourage religious harmony and forge a common front for the wellness of the society.
Governor Ugwuanyi stressed the need for all Nigerians to be prayerful and continue to live in peace and harmony, love and cherish one another as people of one nation under God bound in freedom, peace and unity.
He, therefore, wished Nigerians a pleasant celebration, urging Muslims to remain committed to the core values of peace, love, unity, patience, tolerance, perseverance and sacrifice as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad.
Part of Mbah’s statement read: “Let me thank the Almighty Allah (SWT), the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, for the successful completion of this year’s Holy Month of Ramadan by our Muslim brothers and sisters in Enugu State, Nigeria and the globe.
“This year’s Ramadan has ushered in peace, unity and progress symbolizing the beginning of a new journey of greatness in the annals of our state and country. It has its spiritual significance which all Muslim Ummah must not abandon in the course of this celebration.
“The Holy Ramadan has taught us unconditional love for our family, neighbours, and our society. It has taught us that peace costs nothing but remains priceless. It has given clues on how to live in harmony with people around us.
“Our dear Enugu State, unarguably, remains the most peaceful state in terms of religious tolerance and freedom of worship. We intend to build on this strong pillar of peace in our incoming administration to ensure religious inclusiveness across board.
“As we mark this year’s Eid el Fitr, I urge Nigerians to continue to pray for enduring peace in our state and country in general, see government and governance as a collective responsibility, assist our security agencies in preventing crimes by reporting unusual and strange activities in our neighborhoods, and join hands in the ongoing nation-building”.
The Governor-elect also reassured Enugu residents of his desire to transform the state through industrialisation, robust development policies and projects that would lift the citizens out of the pit of poverty, provide jobs for the youths, empower the vulnerable, and promote gender inclusiveness.
The statement further wished Muslim faithful a happy celebration and Allah’s protection throughout the period of festivity.
