A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), in the forthcoming general elections in Kwara State, Alhaji Shuaib Yaman Abdullahi, has congratulated Muslims on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir sallah celebrations.
In his sallah message issued on Tuesday, the guber aspirant urged Muslim faithful to be tolerant, patriotic, prayerful and have hope in God for a better Kwara State under his leadership.
According to him, “Eid-el-Kabir sallah celebrations is an occasion for sober reflection, fervent prayers, hope and aspiration for a better Kwara State under God fearing and visionary leadership.
“It is a truism that poverty is clearly written on our lands, no quality education for our children, no prompt and regular salaries for our workers, no patronage for our indigenous contractors, no empathy for the old, no employment for our youths, no regular pension for our retirees, no rural development programmes, no scholarship nor bursary for our students and no regular subvention for our tertiary institutions.
“All we see around is potholes on our roads, our infrastructural facilities are dilapidated, our hospitals are crying for attention, we are denied of return on our investments and our commonwealth are unjustly squandered by the few. These undeserving acts being orchestrated by the current political leaders calls for sober reflection and high concerns.”
He however urged youths, men and women of good conscience to rise up against bad governance and look inward for a prosperous state of harmony in 2019 adding that, “Your vote is your right and this should be exercise wisely in the coming elections at all levels.
While urging Kwarans to participate actively in the ongoing Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) registration and collection, Yaman Abdullahi also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), for extending the expiration date of the exercise.
He therefore wished all Muslim faithful a blissful Eid-el-Kabir sallah celebrations even as he urged them to be tolerant and always promote peaceful co-existence in their neighborhood, communities and nation at large.
