Govt. Bello Matawalle Reassures Peace in Zamfara

The Governor of Zamfara felicitates with the Muslim Ummah in the state and beyond as the birth date of Prophet Muhammad ((PBUH) is being celebrated across the globe. In his speech he said ‘’today is indeed the day set aside by the Federal Government to celebrate this year’s Maulud,the birthday of our dear prophet Muhammad [PBUH]’’.“Our celebration is a mark of our gratitude to the Almighty for this special favour unto us,” Matawalle said.

Governor Bello  advised his fellow Muslims to continue to abide on the teaching of the prophet  as much as they could to enable them live a peaceful, happy and a fruitful life here and in the next world to come”. According to him, Islam is peace. We cannot practise it without peace, hence I call on all and sundry to imbibe the spirit of peaceful co-existence so that we can have the blessing of Allah.“We have had more than fair share of unnecessary conflicts and unwanted criminal activities that breach the peace in our state.

He advised the youth to stay put in the way of Allah and never to deviate from the preaching of the prophet. The governor tasked clerics in the state to preach messages of peace and peaceful coexistence among Muslims at the grassroots, as a way of tackling criminality. He attributed youths’ involvement in banditry, kidnapping and other criminality in the state to the level of ignorance to the exemplary life of the Prophet.

This, he said, “contributed to the proliferation of negative tendencies as we see in vices such as banditry, theft and drug addiction.

“Therefore, as we celebrate this special day, I admonished  us all not to forget the essence of the celebration so that we can all reflect back and change our ways of lives for the future.

“And therefore i wish each and everyone of us a happy and a beautiful merriment’’.
