Governor Usman Ododo has assured the people of Kogi State of his administration’s iron-cast commitment to serve with the fear of God.

Governor Ododo gave the assurance in his Eid-el-Kabir address on Sunday.

He stated that his administration has shown commitment, capacity, desire and will power to make Kogi the epicenter of growth and development in Nigeria.

The Governor called on all the people of Kogi state, across religions, to live according to the tenets that embody the Eid-El-Kabir, stressing that it is impossible to build without sacrifices.

“Fellow Kogites. It is an honor to address you on this momentous occasion of the celebration of Eid-El-Kabir. The significance of this celebration is total submission to the command of Allah (SWT).

“Today has become an iconic date in the Islamic Calendar because it is a Feast of Sacrifice and it is the hallmark of our pilgrimage.

“We are united by the call to sacrifice and submission to the will of the Almighty Allah.

“Our state is at a crossroad. We need peace and unity to navigate the challenges that lie ahead and unlock the potentials that our state is reputed for. It is high time we began to strengthen our faith in our Maker.

“There is no better time than now to be reminded of the need to make sacrifices. Our President is working day and night to pull our nation out of the woods into glory. His efforts are beginning to yield bountiful results. On our part in Kogi State, we are focusing on the economic empowerment and security of our people,” he said.

Governor Ododo urged Muslims to seize the opportunity of this festival to pray for leaders and seek the face of Allah for the prosperity of the nation.

Appraising the progress made so far by his administration, Governor Ododo said the state government’s commitment and capacity was evident in the rescue of all kidnapped university students, except the two were unfortunately killed by the enemies of law and morality.

“While we congratulate the families of the rescued students, our thoughts are with the families of the two students that were killed by the kidnappers. I have sworn to protect the life of every Kogite and that we shall do with determination and a positive spirit. Kogites are known for resilience and industry. Our State shall succeed.

“In the spirit of this festive period of sacrifice and submission to the will of Allah, I rededicate myself to the iron-cast commitment to serve you with the fear of God. Our administration is building a strong starting momentum that will redefine the future of our state.”
