The Adamawa authorities has refuted a report revealed in a nationwide day by day, that the state governor, Senator Muhammed Umaru Jibrilla Bindow, abandoned the standard Eid-El-Kabir Sallah homage and left All Progressive Congress (APC) officers stranded on the Government House in Yola.
The authorities described the report as “mischievous carried to falsely portray that Governor Bindow shunned people coming for the routine EID-EL Kabir Sallah homage at the Government House.”
In a press assertion issued by Special Assistant to the Governor on Media Affairs, Mr. Martins Dickson, stated the data contained within the report is not right and it is deceptive in its entirety.
According to him the federal government, via the Commissioner for Information, Ahmed Sajoh, had earlier issued a press assertion on why the governor cancelled this yr’s Sallah homage, and that was to enable all Muslims consider the religious function of the festivity by having time to proceed with prayers with their pals and households for the nation’s leaders particularly President Muhammadu Buhari, and for the unity of the nation and its lasting peace.
“There was no such visit by APC chieftains to the Government House as quoted in the report, as every stakeholder in the state is aware of the cancellation which was widely publicized in the media and the Governor’s position regarding maximizing the period of this Sallah to have spiritual gains for the benefit of the state and the nation at large.”
He reiterated that one of many many causes of the cancellation of the homage is to depict the essence of getting sober reflection and excessive religious sensitivity in prayer concerning the multifaceted challenges of Nigeria’s unity, peace and financial progress, therefore the necessity to do the bizarre by having extra time in prayer and sacrifices for the whole management of the nation.
“It is unlucky that mischievous individuals will thwart this good gesture of the Governor and take a look at to selfishly shade it for his or her curiosity.
“Senator Jibrilla stays delicate to the happenings in Adamawa state and the nation at giant and can at all times lead the nice folks of Adamawa state who’re sturdy folks of religion to at all times search divine intervention in all circumstances and in some instances even making additional sacrifices as on this case.”
