“The sacrifices you have all made during the holy month of Ramadan should draw everyone closer to the Almighty Allah. I enjoin all our Muslim brothers and sisters to draw enduring lessons from the holy Month of Ramadan, which include personal sacrifices and self denial. I call on you to emulate the good virtues and teachings of Prophet Mohammed”, Fintiri said
The governor noted that Adamawa is known for peace and therefore enjoined citizens and residents of the State to ensure that the hard earned peace is sustained.
