Gov Diri fecilitates with Muslims on Eid-el-Fitr

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State, has felicitated with Muslim faithful in the state and across Nigeria on this year’s Eid-el-Fitr festivities.
Governor Diri, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, on Tuesday, said that the month-long Ramadan fast, which culminates in Eid-el-Fitr, was a period for Muslims to reflect on the lessons of tolerance, love and sacrifice that the celebration typifies.
The Bayelsa state governor said that as one of the key pillars of Islam, the Ramadan was important for developing the virtues of self-renunciation in every true Muslim.
Felicitating with adherents of the Islamic faith, he urged them to pray for the peace, progress and prosperity of Bayelsa State and Nigeria.
Governor Diri said his administration will continue to ensure peaceful co-existence in the state as it promotes the virtues of love, religious tolerance and harmony.
He added that the government’s commitment to peace and the security of lives and property has fostered harmony between adherents of the different faiths in order to build a prosperous state for everyone to realise their dreams.
“Again, I wish our Muslim brethren a happy Eid-el-Fitr celebration,” he said.
