Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe state, has urged politicians to shun politics of blackmail and violence and ensure the sustainability of peace and unity in the country.
Dankwambo gave the advice during Sallah lunch held at the state banquet hall, shortly after the Eid-el kabir prayers.
While pleading with those vying for political office to maintain decorum and avoid using inflammable words, he said that. “As we are approaching critical political era, it is our hope that politicians in the country will allow the peace and unity of Nigeria.”
According to him, the celebration is an opportunity to learn the lessons of Eid-El-Kabir by living peacefully in obedience to the dictates of Allah.
“ I admonish us all to learn from the lesson of Eid-El-Kabir and show love to one another irrespective of religious or ethnic differences.
“We must imbibe the tenets of Islam by promoting harmony and peaceful co-existence amongst our diverse people.
“ Eid-El-Kabir festival connotes sacrifice, selflessness, love and obedience to the dictates of Allah”, he said.
