Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, has called on Nigerians to use the Eid- El Kabir to promote unity, tolerance and peaceful co-existence irrespective of tribe, religion political affiliations.
The governor made the appeal on Saturday in Daura when he paid Sallah homage to the emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk.
He urged Nigerians to appreciate the importance of peaceful co-existence, adding that peace was paramount to the country’s existence.
He described those who were in the habit of formulating troubles through divisive statements and uncomplimentary comments as “greedy and unpatriotic citizens.’’
The governor said he was in Daura to pay homage to President Muhammadu Buhari and the emir, adding that Kano and Daura have similar traditions, customs and values.
He said that since the inception of his administration in 2015, has created thousands of jobs and executed hundreds of projects that were beneficial to the people.
Ganduje commended the administration of President Buhari, especially in its drive to free the nation from corruption, insurgency and other social vices which retards the socio-economic development of the nation.
The governor was accompanied on the visit by his commissioners, friends and other top government functionaries and party stalwarts.
