Umuahia – The leaders of the Muslim community in Abia State were Tuesday hosted for the breaking of the Ramadan fast at Government House, Umuahia, where Governor Okezie Ikpeazu urged them to imbibe good neighbourliness and also feel at home in the state.

Governor Ikpeazu maintained that his administration was always ready to protect those who remain law abiding and continue to pursue the spirit of one Nigeria.

The governor recalled that he went to Maiduguri at the age of 16 and spent about 17 years at the University of Maiduguri for his Bachelors and Masters Degrees and disclosed that he was very conversant with the tenets of Islam and has a lot of respect for the Muslim faith.

He challenged the Muslim faithful to continue to practise the good deeds they imbibed during the period of Ramadan and wished them a happy Eid-El-Fitr Sallah celebrations; urging them to support President Muhammdu Buhari and the fight against corruption in the country.

Earlier, Alhaji Musa Iheakaram who led the Chief Imams of Aba, Umuahia, Lokpanta and Ohafia and the Sarkin Hausa Aba and Umuahia as well as the Sarkin Fulani disclosed that that Muslims in Abia State were at Government House, Umuahia, to express solidarity with the Abia State Governor and thanked him for his love for Muslims in the state.
