In his Sallah message, the governor congratulated the people on the occasion, but cautioned them against taking chances as far as their personal security and that of the state ,was concerned.

“As I congratulate you all on this joyous occasion, I urge you to be extra vigilant and security conscious, so that our celebration and determination to move our state forward , are not impeded and frustrated by those whose primary preoccupation is to inflict pain and cause disharmony.

“By the Grace of God, our collective goodness will triumph over their diabolical schemes”, said the Governor, in a Press Release issued on his behalf by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Malam Yakubu Ibn- Mohammed.

He urged the people to use the occasion to do some “soul-searching, with a view to improving the relationships between us and Almighty Allah on the one hand, and between us and fellow humans, on the other”.
