Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State has felicitated with Muslims on the commencement of Ramadan, urging for more commitment to the cause of the nation.
The Governor, in statement signed by his Media aide Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, called on Muslims in the country to make good use of the Holy month of Ramadan to pray for the nation and its leadership.
He said as a period of devotion, there was no better time to dedicate to Nigeria’s cause than now, in view of the insecurity challenges threatening its corporate existence.
“As a period of intense devotion and introspection, it behoves on us to use religion for the advancement, not the dismemberment of our nation.
“This we can do by imbibing the lessons which the month of Ramadan seeks to teach us, especially showing love to one another regardless of religious inclination, assisting the less privileged and placing our collective interest over and above individual considerations.
“We must remember that a nation is only as good as its leadership, which means we cannot wish evil for our leaders and expect prosperity for the nation”.
Governor Masari reiterated that the APC administration at federal and state levels was committed to providing the credible leadership that would see Nigeria out of its two most daunting challenges of corruption and insecurity, which he said were caused by bad leadership over time in the past.
