Governor Okorocha Hosts Muslims To Ramadan ‘Iftar’

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has said Ramadan is a period of spiritual rebirth that requireds sober reflection.

Okorocha spoke yesterday when he hosted Muslim faithful to a Ramadan ‘iftar’. He urged Christians and Muslims to unite and fight the Boko Haram insurgency.

The governor urged Nigerians to pray for the nation, especially for President Muhammadu Buhari to succeed, pointing out that Buhari’s victory was an eye opener that nobody should be judged based on tribe or religion, but by what he can do for his country.

Chairman of the Muslim Council, Yusuf Nwoha said the Ramadan ‘iftar’ had been a tradition since Governor Okorocha came into power. He said this year’s occasion was important and unique because the invitation was extended to Muslims residing in other Southeast states.
Nwoha appreciated the honor done them while pledging the support of Muslims to the Okorocha-led government.

The chairman also requested for an Eid ground, large enough to contain the ever-increasing Muslim population as well as the establishment of a Muslim Pilgrims Welfare board
