Shettima Counsels Muslims On Eid el Kashim

Ahmed Mohammed, Maiduguri
The Borno state Governor Hon. Kashim Shettima has called on all Muslim Ummah and Nigerians in general to use the Eid el Kabir celebration to reflect on all security personnel, members of the youth vigilante, hunters and other civilians who laid their lives for peace to reign in the state, North-east and the nation at large in fighting terrorism.
Governor Shettima who made the call in his Sallah message after performing his aid yesterday told journalists that hundreds of military, police, Department of State Security Services (DSS), Immigration, Customs personnel as well as Civilian JTF men and hunters have sacrificed their lives while defending the people of the northeast against Boko Haram invasion.
He said “Eid Kabir is for Muslims to emulate Prophet Ibrahim who offered to sacrifice his only son, Ismail in obedience to the command of Allah out of absolute faith and selflessness. Sallah should also be used by Nigerians to reflect on how many soldiers, police men, staff of the DSS, personnel of the Customs and Immigration manning borders as well as civilian volunteers, particularly the civilian JTF in Borno and hunters across the Northeast offered their lives in the fight against Boko Haram insurgents in order to secure us,” .
The governor said the insurgency bedevilling the northeast will soon be surmounted, adding that Borno particularly would bounce back as truly home of peace. “I assure the people of Borno that very soon, the problem will be over,’ he said.
He disclosed that his government would soon embark on massive reconstruction, rehabilitation and re-integration of communities destroyed by the insurgents and appealed to the people to be patience and support the Federal Government and military’s determination to end insurgency in the area.
The governor in an earlier Sallah message issued by his Media aid, Mallam Isa Gusau, urged “people living around families to visit the survivors of these heroes that lost their lives in defending their fatherland, as a result of Boko Haram insurgency and extends kind gestures to them in a very respectful manner which their dead ones highly deserve.”
