The Governor’s message is contained in a Statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Muhammed Onogwu.
The statement describes Ramadan as a season of several teachings that centered on humanity, kindness, peace and love hence if these lessons were imbibed many of the problems in the country would not exist.
The statement extends the Governor’s felicitation to all Muslims all over, particularly in Kogi State on the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan, while thanking God Almighty for keeping everyone who had witnessed the end in strength and health.
It uses the oportunity again to harp on the gains of peaceful co-existence and national integration, noting that Nigeria’s greater achievements as a nation lies in being united and not allowing ethnic, religion and political affiliations divide us.

The statement restates Governor Bello’s commitment of his administration to ensure that Kogi State and its people continued to enjoy the dividends of democracy which could only be guaranteed when lives and properth of people were safe.
