The Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Dr. Edward Onoja, has praised Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) for its consistency of purpose and duly partaking in the activities of the Christian community in the state.

Onoja gave the commendation on Thursday evening when he received in audience, members of the Kogi State chapter of JNI led by State Chairman, Ambassador Usman Bello.

The Deputy Governor noted that JNI’s support for religious tolerance in the state “expressly narrates the texts of the scriptures for the two faiths.”

He added that: “It is also good to tell our stories for not going from bad to worse, but from good to better as it relates to the insecurity challenges affecting the country.

“We credit this fresh air of prosperity being witnessed in Kogi State to prayers by the various religious groups, as we continue to call for increased prayers for the country in these perilous times.”

Chief Onoja, whilst ticking boxes of demands made by JNI, said given the current challenges bedeviling the country, it is only only logical that Governor Yahaya Bello who has shown capacity in his base of Kogi is handed the baton to replicate his mouthwatering achievements on the national scale.

The umbrella group for the Nigerian Muslim community in Kogi State said the purpose of the courtesy visit was to thank Governor Bello and his Deputy, Chief Onoja, for their unalloyed support and encouragement to the chapter over the years.

It highlighted the completion of the Okpo Central Mosque and Government House Chapel as a reflection of the duo’s bias for tolerance, equity, and fairness, which according to JNI, has edged the State on the paths of prosperity.
