The executive Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has in the spirit of Eid-el-Kabir celebration urged Muslims all over Nigeria to continue praying for peace in the country.
The Governor made this call after he supervised the distribution of Rams to some Muslim leaders in the state on Sunday.
Ayodele Fayose while speaking at the Ekiti State Government House in Ado Ekiti on Sunday said: “We should live above board, we should live in line with what we preach, as Muslim brothers we are one and the same. We must equally pray for the Unity of Nigeria. It is not enough to say I am a Christian or I am a Muslim, we must live by reaching out to one another and equally putting one another under check when we are doing the wrong thing, nobody should be above the law.
“In the circumstance that we have found ourselves, our nation is in challenging times, we should come out and support this nation so that Nigeria does not go down.”
The governor, while speaking on the reason behind his move to distribute the rams said: “I do this because it’s part of the Cardinals of the Islamic religion and as a leader, the little I am able to do, I should be seen to be doing so.
“I might not be able to buy ram for everybody, I can’t give ram to everyone but my people must still see the love in me trying my best to at least identify with everybody”.
