NEWS Eid-el-Fitr: Bauchi Gov preaches peace, tolerance, cautions motor.
As Muslims in Nigeria join their counterparts across the world to celebrate the 2019 Eid -el – Fitr , which marks the end of the Ramadan fast , the Bauchi State Governor , Bala Mohammed , has cautioned motorists to desist from over speeding to reduce loss of lives and properties from accidents.
The Governor ’s warning was contained in a Sallah message signed by his Spokesperson , Ladan Salihu , and made available to newsmen in Bauchi on Tuesday .
Salihu said , “ The Governor hereby extend his appeal to all motorists to observe traffic regulations so that we can reduce accidents on our highways throughout the period of the Eid – el -Fitr celebrations and beyond. ”

He said the Governor called on Muslims in the state to use the occasion to reflect on past activities and see how they have fared spiritually .

He also said they are expected to emulate the Prophet of Allah, by making sacrifices in their worldly dealings, for the benefits of the less privileged ones in the society and should pray to Almighty Allah for peace , unity and prosperity in the years ahead .
“Islam , as you are all aware , is a religion of peace and preaches nothing but peace. It is also propagated on total submission to the will of Allah and peaceful coexistence between and among our fellow human beings .

“As Muslims , we should learn from the teachings of the Ramadan in our day – to-day dealings with our brothers and sisters and extend the hands of fellowship to the followers of other faiths. The Eid – el Fitr should also be used to strengthen existing relationships and establish new ones,” Salihu stated .
