Africa-Press – Nigeria. Kogi State Governor, Ahmed Usman Ododo has admonished Muslims across the country to imbibe the lessons learnt from the holy month of Ramadan.

Governor Ododo stated this after observing his prayer on Wednesday in commemoration of the Eid-el-Fitr in Okene, Kogi State.

According to him, “The month of Ramadan is not only a time of food and drinks. It is a time of spiritual requirements and compassion for one another.

“The month of Ramadan is a time that teaches us patience, empathy, love and understanding within and among our people. As we mark the end of the Ramadan fast, I am urging each and every one of us to carry forward the lessons we learnt in this month of Ramadan.

“Let us continue to practice kindness, generosity, love and understanding in our daily lives. This month of Ramadan is a month that teaches us to remember those that are less privileged and enables us to extend hands of fellowship to those who are in need,” he stated.

Responding to the recent attack in Omala Local Government that claimed scores of lives, Governor Ododo told journalists that the suspected sponsors have been arrested.

He said, “Reacting to noise makers, and those that do not have a stake as far as governance is concerned is not part of the mandate given to me by the good people of Kogi State and Mr President. The crisis in Bagana in Omala Local Government did not start today. It has been in existence for over 45 years ago, precisely 1978. We are doing our best to make sure peace is restored within the area.

” As I speak to you today, the suspected sponsors have been arrested, investigations are ongoing. They are giving us useful information that will lead to the arrest of other suspects. As soon as we are done with that investigation, the report will be made known to the public”
