Governor Uzodimma said imbibing the spirit of love, peace, kindness, unity and sacrifice goes a long way in showing their understanding of what Prophet Mohammed stood and died for.

The governor further tasked the Muslims to remember to observe all the Covid-19 pandemic protocols as they mingle in merriment, noting that wearing of face masks, washing their hands with running water and observing social distancing, will go a long way in helping them observe incident free Sallah celebration.

Furthermore, Governor Uzodimma urged the Muslims with means not to forget the poor and vulnerable ones in their midst by ensuring that they share with them what they have in the spirit of the occasion.
