Umahi charges Muslim community to contribute to Ebonyi development




Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi has admonished the Muslim community in the state to be resourceful and contribute to the peace and economic growth of the state.

Umahi made the commendation on Wednesday in Abakaliki when a delegation of the Muslim faithful in the state paid him an Eid-el-Kabir homage at the Government House.

He said, “Muslims are gifted in commerce and agriculture, among other ventures and I pray for your prosperity in Ebonyi and beyond,” Umahi said.

He also commended the group for shunning crime and urged them to continue to sustain the security and peace in the state.

He charged the people to ensure orderliness and eschew acts that could infringe on the rights of other residents and a breach of the peace during the celebration.
