The speaker attributed the nation's travails to failure of Nigerians to obey Allah's injunctions.

He charged Muslims to use the fasting period for spiritual rejuvenation and pray for the success of the new government in Nigeria by making life more abundant for the citizens.

The statement quoted the governor as lauding the existing peaceful co-existence between both Muslims and Christians in the state.

The speaker, according to the statement, assured the people that under his stewardship, the house will be genuinely committed toward providing a platform for good governance in the state.
