From Nahum Sule, Jalingo
Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku, today felicitated with the entire Muslim Ummah in Taraba State on the momentous occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.
In a statement issue by his media aide Bala Dan Abu, Ishaku congratulated them for the opportunity provided again by Allah (SWA) for a happy and peaceful celebration, noting that the events of the past couple of years in Nigeria have proven that God is interested in the unity and survival of Nigeria as a country.
He noted with regret that insecurity, particularly, the Boko Haram insurgency, kidnappings of people from their homes and on the roads and of children from their schools have remained a big challenge to the country. He called for vigilance and greater support by all Nigerians for the nation’s security agencies as they struggle to contain the dangerous elements that are out to kill and maim innocent people.
Ishaku urged Nigerians of all religious faiths and beliefs to continue to pray against these ills that have continued to threaten peace and safety of lives and properties. He said his administration’s efforts against insecurity have been very fruitful and that’s the reason Taraba State is today enjoying relative peace.
In the area of delivery of democratic dividends, Ishaku said his administration has done a lot and will do much more to transform the state and make life better for the generally of Tarabans. He urged them to continue to pray and to support his administration in its determination to complete all on-going projects before its terminal date in 2023.
He wished the Muslim Ummah a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
