The Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar and Chairman, Niger State Council of Traditional Rulers,has appealed to traders not to hike prices of their commodities thereby using the Ramadan period for high profit.
Etsu Abubakar stated this at the weekend in Bida, Niger State when he met with Imams, Islamic clerics and representatives of various market traders to make them realize their roles in the Ramadan period.
According to the Royal father, “Those using the period to increase prices of their commodities should have a re-think and fear God and not to cause any unnecessary hardship on their fellow brothers and sisters in Islam”.
While reiterating his advice against provocative preaching, he stated that provocative sermons was capable of inciting the public against each other before, during and after Ramadan.
“Religious preachings during this period should be targeted at maintaining harmonious relationship among the people and nothing should be done to divide the people”, Etsu Nupe said.
The traditional ruler said that such harmonious relationship among people should always be promoted to enhance peace, unity and progress of Nupe kingdom, Niger state and indeed Nigerians
In his remarks on behalf of others, the Chief Imam of Bida, Sheikh Adamu Liman-Yakatun warned all and sundry to have the fear of God in their minds and to always remember the day of reckoning.
He also appealed to wealthy individuals to assist in feeding of the less privileged to cushion the effect of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.
