Religious, traditional and community leaders have been told to intensify prayer for sustainable peace in the country.
Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo gave this charge in his goodwill message as Muslims in celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitr.
He said “sustainable peace, which is a catalyst for the development of our dear state and country in general.
“As we are aware, no meaningful development can take place in an atmosphere of rancour and acrimony. We should therefore be tolerant with each other and encourage peaceful coexistence amongst our diverse people,” he said.
The governor also urged the people of Gombe State to remain security conscious and report acts capable of threatening the peace of the state, as he pledged commitment to the protection of lives and property of the citizenry.
He appreciated the patriotism of the people and their continuous support to his administration.
“I wish to reassure you that we remain committed to the provision of socio-economic infrastructure towards improving the wellbeing of our people,” he added.
He called on motorists and motorcyclists to abide by traffic rules and regulations, and desist from the habit of disobeying traffic lights to ensure accident-free motoring during the celebrations and beyond.
