Eid-el-Fitr: Ortom Calls For Prayers To End Insecurity
The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has called for sustained prayers to end insecurity in parts of the country, even as Muslims celebrate this year’s Eid-ul-Fitr.
The Governor believes that with prayers and commitment on the part of government and the people, the wave of killings, kidnappings, herdsmen attacks, and banditry will be surmounted.
He says the peace, security, and unity of the country must be placed above personal and sectional interests, as keeping Nigeria safe and united is a task for all its citizens.
The Governor urges Muslims in the state to promote the values and lessons of Ramadan such as piety, generosity, peaceful coexistence, and justice.
He acknowledged and appreciated the prayers made by the Muslim community anytime the state is confronted by challenges.
Governor Ortom assured the Benue people that the security of lives and property will remain the priority of his administration.
He wishes all Muslims peaceful Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations.
