Kogi gov seeks more support for Tinubu

From Emmanuel Adeyemi, Lokoja

Kogi State Governor, Ahmed  Usman Ododo, has called on Nigerians to join hands and support President Bola Tinubu to enable him achieve his programmes and policies for the country.

Governor Ododo, in his Sallah message in Okene, shortly after he observed  eid prayer, yesterday, urged Nigerians, irrespective of their political affiliation to join hands and support the many initiatives of the president in order to move the nation forward.

While felicitating with Muslims, Governor Ododo urged the people of the state to reflect on the spirit of the celebration and sacrifice more in the name of Allah, and commit to actions that would uplift the  state and country.

“As a government, we are committed to protecting lives and property and promoting social welfare by delivering dividends of democracy to enhance the living conditions of our people at all times.

Governor Ododo reaffirmed that his administration would continue to prioritise issues of security, stressing that Kogi State can never be a fertile land for criminals to practice their dubious and ungodly trade.

He  warned criminal elements to move out of the state or face the full wrath of the law.

“Let us be security conscious and engage in consistent watch over our neighbourhoods and be prepared to report any suspicious activity to law enforcement agents who are present in all our communities,” he charged.

In his message, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Ahmed Tijani Anaje, cautioned his people against disobedience and behavior that can impede the peaceful coexistence of the inhabitants of his domain.

He congratulated Muslims and urged them to  imbibe the teaching of the religion through constant emulation of the prophet Muhammad’s deeds and  ways of life.

The Chief Imam of Ebiraland Sheik Salihu Abere prayed to God to give Governor Ododo the strength and patience to pilot the affairs of the state.

He called on Muslims to love one another and also extend it to non-Muslims in the spirit of peace, unity as exemplified by the holy Prophet Muhammad.
