Plateau State Governor in North-Central Nigeria, Simon Bako Lalong has felicitated with the Muslim Ummah in Plateau State and Nigeria at large on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast ushering in the Eid-Al-Fitr celebrations.
Governor Lalong in a message to mark the event expressed optimism that the period of the fast provided an opportunity for the Muslim Ummah to devote themselves to personal and corporate prayers as well as self purification for a better relationship with God and man.
He said the Ramadan period was significant because it enabled them to not only commit their personal affairs to God, but also ask God to intervene in the many challenges of the State and Nation at large.
The Governor also used the event to call for more prayers for Plateau and Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general elections, urging for unity and tolerance by the electorate as well as the political class whose conduct and utterances are vital to the overall success of the elections.
