AS RAMADAN FAST BEGINS: GOV DICKSON URGES MUSLIMS TO SOBERLY REFLECT ON GOOD DEEDS OF PROPHET MOHAMMED
On behalf of myself, the Government and good people of Bayelsa State, I want to seize this opportunity marking the commencement of the Ramadan fast today, to send warm greetings to all our Muslim brothers and Sisters across Nigeria.
As you partake in the Ramadan Fast in line with the commandments of the Holy Quran (Chapter2: 185), I urge you to soberly reflect on the good deeds of Prophet Mohammed, while using the period to also pray for peace and unity in our country. The period of the Fast also offers you a unique opportunity to demonstrate our love for one another as Nigerians, Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. Let us use this period to renew our commitment to our nation and strengthen the bonds of unity amongst our people irrespective of tribe or religion.
I wish you all a spirit-filled Ramadan Fast.
His Excellency, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson
Governor, Bayelsa State
