Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna state has expressed concerns with the continued insecurity resulting to the mounting death tolls in the state and the country.
Apparently worried that the developments have defied military and medical attentions, El-Rufai has called on the people to pray for Kaduna state and the country in this challenging time just as he appealed for observance of Covid protocols among Muslim faithfuls as they continue with the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
In a message of felicitation signed by Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, the governor urged Muslims to emulate the example of faith and sacrifice that Sallah symbolizes.
The concerned governor, who equally decried the current hardship in the country, commended the resilience of citizens in this tough time and “prayed for the blessings of Allah for the immense sacrifices that are being made.
He urged the Muslim community to keep hope alive, and to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir in compliance with public health guidelines prescribed to protect everyone from the very infectious Delta variant Covid-19 that is already circulating in some states in the country.
Speaking further, the governor appealed to all communities in Kaduna state to uphold peace and harmony, despite the security challenges in many communities.
He further urged all residents to remain vigilant and be law-abiding as security agencies intensify anti-banditry operations to secure communities.
