ZAMFARA – Gov. Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara State on Friday urged Muslims to use the Ramadan period to pray for peace and stability of the country.

The governor made the call when a delegation of Community Leaders Association in the state paid him Ramadan homage at his residence in Talata Mafara.

Yari noted that the country, especially the Northern part, needed prayers considering the issues of insecurity.

“It is only when there is peace and stability that the government can perform its primary obligations thereby leading to socio-economic development of the general public.”

The governor further called on Nigerians to support their leaders with prayers so that they would work based on the interest of the general public.

“It is only with prayers that the leaders could deliver on promises so that the public can enjoy the dividends of democracy.”

Earlier, Chairman of the association, Alhaji Abdurrazak Shobanke, said they were at the governor’s residence to register their solidarity and support.

He commended the present administration for its `wonderful agenda’ aimed at transforming the state.

Shobanke noted that the projects executed by the present administration had contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of the state especially in the rural areas. (NAN)
