The governor of Abia, Alex Otti, has urged Muslims to pray for the state’s government as it works to restore the state.
In his address for the state’s Muslim community’s Eid el Kabir on Wednesday in Umuahia, Otti made this statement.
The governor referred to Eid el Kabir as the most significant religious event in the Islamic calendar and a chance for Muslims to interact with God.
He urged the state’s Muslim population to regularly pray for his administration as it tries to raise the standard of living for Abia’s citizens.
“I think that our government is the response to the many years of prayers to Almighty God by the people of Abia State and their yearning for a better life,”
The governor urged the Muslim community to uphold the state’s government in prayer and to continue to be obedient.
In order to alter them in line with his campaign pledges, he said that the state administration had declared emergencies in a number of state economic areas, including the environment, health, and education.
In order to make doing business easier, Otti claimed that procedures had been put in place to disinfect marketplaces, roadways, and parking lots.
He congratulated the Muslim community and thanked them for their support of the state government’s projects and policies.
Otti asked the residents of Abia to uphold the law, live in peace, and refrain from any actions that would incite unrest in the region.
