"I congratulate us all for this rare opportunity which by the grace of Allah SWT our lives are spared and granted good health to reap the rich benefits in this holy month.
"We should therefore, have a sober reflection, seek Allah's forgiveness, internalise the teachings of the Holy Ramadan, build new relationships and pray for security and prosperity of our state and country." Governor Buni said.

"We will concentrate on people-oriented projects and policies that would improve the lives of our people" the Governor added.

He also prayed for a fruitful Ramadan fast and Sallah celebration at the end of the one month fasting period.
The one month religious obligation started today after sighting of the new moon in several places in the state, the country and across the globe.
