Bauchi State Governor, Sen Bala Mohammed,  has extended his Sallah goodwill message to the people of the state , calling on Muslims to use the Eid el Kabir period to reassess their relationship with Allah with a view to attracting blessings and mercies of the Creator.

The Governor said: “As we all know,  the Eid-el-Kabir is celebrated annually in  commemoration of the great sacrifice and total submission of Prophet Abraham (AS) to the will of Allah when he answered the Divine call to sacrifice his only son, Prophet Ismail.

“This indeed is the  highest spiritual sacrifice  that has ever,  been made in observance  of divine injunction. It is therefore worthy of emulation, especially by the Muslim Umma.   I want to start by giving Glory to Allah (SWT) for sparing our lives to witness yet another Eid-el-Kabir celebration”, he added.

Governor Mohammed further said that, “The religion of Islam propagates total submission to the will of Allah (SWT) and peaceful co-existence amongst the Muslim Ummah and with adherents  of other faiths.  The Holy Qur’an has also  commanded all Muslims to give something in charity out of the treasure which Allah has bestowed on them”.

According to him, “This should be done without consideration for religious, ethnic or political differences.  We should also use the Eid–el Kabir occasion to strengthen the existing interpersonal relationships and create new ones” .

The Governor added that, “There is also the need for us to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness, humility and respect for one another.  We should pray for the prevailing  peace in the State to be sustained   and for  adequate rainfall for us to  have a bumper harvest  during this farming season.

“Let me use this opportunity to reiterate our Administration’s commitment to continue to serve the good people of Bauchi State to take the State to greater heights.  As you can see, we are  making  our modest efforts in infrastructural development, education, health, youth empowerment and agriculture,  which I believe  are critical to the development of our dear State. We will continue to pursue developmental projects which have direct bearings on the lives of our people”, he stressed.

Mohammed added that, “We are not unmindful of the economic hardship being experienced by the  generality of the people. This is a global problem which has its  origin in the Covid-19 pandemic  since last year.  I want to  appeal to you  to bear with  the situation which Is temporary.”

He assured that, “As responsive Government,  we will continue to render palliative measures   with a view to cushioning the effects of the hardship. I will however appeal to you to make some sacrifices to ensure that we overcome the hardship.”
