Former deputy governorship candidate to the late Prince Abubakar Audu in the 2015 Governorship election in Kogi State, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke has once again appealed to Kogi state government to pay civil servants and pensioners their due entitlements to enable our Muslim brothers and sister perform the Ramadan fast with ease.

In a press statement made available to newsmen in Lokoja on Thursday, Faleke stated that his appeal for the immediate complete payment of salaries and pensions is altruistic and not political.

He urged Governor Yahaya Bello to for once  avoid politicization of his appeal, particularly during the holy month of Ramadan.

The APC chieftain congratulated Muslim faithfuls for witnessing yet another blessed month of consecration and blessings.

“This month of Ramadan symbolises an environment of peace, harmony and equality, besides emphasising on charity. Ramadan fasting signifies disciplined life, unity among the people and rendering help to the poor and needy.

Faleke observed that “In this blessed month, we all have opportunities to reflect on the blessings we have been given and work toward greater fellowship with one another.

Together, in the spirit of Ramadan, we can achieve a more harmonious and respectful society,” he said.

He then urged Muslim faithfuls to imbibe the virtues of tolerance, brotherliness, care for the needy and self discipline.

While requesting for prayers for the rescue and restoration of our dear state, he prayed to Allah to give our Muslim brothers and sisters the strength and every needed energy during the holy month of Ramadan.
