The Governor noted that more can be achieved with unity and compassion for one another irrespective of differences in religious inclinations.

Governor Ododo who commended Muslim leaders for sustaining religious tolerance in the state, urged them to continue to pray for the success of those in power, adding that the present administration requires their support and prayers to succeed.

According to Governor Ododo:
“Ramadan goes beyond abstinence from food and drinks even as it enhances spiritual rejuvenation; we must continue to preach compassion, patience, empathy and unity among our people because these are lessons of Ramadan.
