…..wisdom, enabling him to translate his administration’s MORE agenda into tangible development.
By Mustapha Bello:
DELTA pilgrims participating in the current hajj in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, have offered prayers for peace and comprehensive progress to define Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration.
During the ongoing hajj, Alhaji Auwalu Tukur, the immediate past Chairman of the Muslims Pilgrims Welfare Board in Delta State, urged Muslims in the state to utilize the Ei del Kabir period to beseech Allah to grant Governor Sheriff Oborevwori wisdom, enabling him to translate his administration’s MORE agenda into tangible development.
Tukur, who led the pilgrims from Delta State to the Holy Land, commended the previous governor of the State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, for establishing a strong foundation for his successor to build upon.
He emphasized that their primary objective in Mecca was to pray for peace and all-encompassing development to characterize Governor Oborevwori’s administration.
Highlighting the lesson of Ei del Kabir, which centers around sacrifice as exemplified by Prophet Mohammed, he appealed to everyone to foster unity and extend goodwill to one another, ensuring that every segment of society feels included.
Tukur assured the present administration of the continued support from the Arewa Community in Delta State.
He called upon those involved in promoting terrorism and disunity to prioritize the nation’s interests over personal gains, emphasizing the need for harmony to overcome the challenges facing the country.
Furthermore, he urged legislators at both the state and federal levels to enact laws that would expedite development across all sectors.
In addition, Alhaji Abinbara, an Imam from the state, expressed gratitude to Oborevwori for consistently showing support for Muslims in the state during the Sallah period by presenting rams and other gifts. He prayed to Allah for success throughout his tenure.
Special prayers were conducted for Governor Oborevwori, Dr. Okowa, and the people of Delta State at Medina and Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia.
