Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated Muslims and all Kwarans on the occasion of Eid-el-Adha 1432 AH, praying God to bless their households, accept their prayers, and reward their offerings.
In a personal Eid message to the people of the state, on Monday, the governor said the feast of sacrifice is a reminder of the rewards that await those who are patient and submit to God’s will and maintain excellent relations with fellow human beings, irrespective of their differences.
He said: “I bid the Muslim community and indeed every Kwaran a blessed and peaceful Eid. Ahead of the Eid, however, I urge everyone to pay attention to the latest development around COVID-19 outbreak.
“We cannot afford to be complacent. I, therefore, urge all to be guided by COVID-19 protocols as issued by the federal government.
“We should at all times prioritise personal and public safety, including correct use of face mask.
“On this Eid and always, I commend us to work together, as one people under one God, to build a stronger country, and to jettison non-progressive politics and or everything that may threaten national peace and security or destroy the livelihood and joy of others.”
