By Musa Tanimu Nasidi.
 The Speaker Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Umar  Imam, has called on Muslim Ummah to sustain the virtues of endurance, discipline and love imbibed during the holy month of Ramadan.
Imam  made the call while speaking with this reporter in Lokoja recently.
He admonished Muslim ummah in the  State to pray for peace and unity, adding that where there is no peace there will be no development.
“I congratulate the Muslim Ummah on the successful completion of the Ramadan Fast. It is also my hope that the virtues imbibed in the holy month are sustained beyond the Ramadan and brought to bear in our personal lives and efforts at nation building.
“Fasting in itself is a lesson in endurance, discipline, holiness, and religious adherence. We must all inculcate these virtues in the management of our country, engagement by interest groups and daily endeavours as individuals.
“With endurance, we will overcome the present recession. With discipline, we will defeat corruption and with religious adherence, we will entrench love, justice, and equity, which are the hallmarks of major religions in the country,” he said.
