The Chairman, Kogi State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, Comrade Suleiman Abdullahi Ndalayi, on Sunday urged Muslims in the state to pray for continuous peace and prosperity in the state as they celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festival.
This was contained in a Sallah message he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokoja.
Ndalayi also urged residents in the state to remain steadfast and committed in the support of the Yahaya Bello-led administration for the development of the state.
“As I celebrate with my mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers in Islam, I will also wish to show gratitude to all the people of Kogi State for the support given to us since the beginning of this administration.
”I assure you all of our commitment to all electoral promises always”.
“We know times are tough but we are a tough people too, instead of complaining always about the comatose state we met our dear state, we will keep working, ” he said.
The SUBEB boss further urged residents of the state to partner in strengthening the bond and unity in Nigeria.
“I believe we are Nigerians first, before any religious or political affiliation, I urge all to always give peaceful coexistence a chance to ensure a faster and long lasting economic and socio-political stability,” he said.
