Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, felicitates with Muslim faithful in the state and across Nigeria on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival.
As our Muslim brothers, sisters and friends mark this special season, I join them to celebrate even as I urge them to reflect on the lessons of sacrifice, charity and love that the feast of Eid-el-Kabir epitomises.
The challenges facing our country, especially at this period of the global coronavirus pandemic, require introspection by the Muslim Ummah on the teachings of their Prophet.
So, I urge our Muslim faithful to continue to live in peace and love while praying for the prosperity of Bayelsa and our country.
My administration is committed to promoting peaceful co-existence between and among adherents of the different faiths in order to build a prosperous and peaceful state for everyone to realise their dreams.
Happy Sallah celebrations.
