The two leaders in their separate Sallah messages, urged Muslims to continue to pray for the success of the government at all levels.
Governor Sule congratulated the Muslim in the community of Nasarawa state for observing the Holy festival of sacrifice.
In a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen on Thursday, the Governor said that the feast of Eid-El-Kabir is a test of faith in commemoration of the sublime submission by Prophet Ibrahim which calls for sacrifice.
He enjoined all Muslim faithfuls to live a life of sacrifice, selflessness, brotherhood and in adherence to Allah commands.
“My brothers and sisters, I wish to remind us that occasion such as this calls for sober reflections on our relationship with God and fellow human beings as a yardstick for righteous living, love and peaceful coexistence,” Governor Sule said.
Similarly, Al-makura, who represents Nasarawa Southern zone, felicitated with Muslims in his constituency.
Al-Makura, in a statement, he personally signed, enjoined Muslim Ummah to use the period to promote peace, mutual understanding and unity of the people in his constituency, the state and country at large.
He said the celebration was coming at a time when Nigeria is in dire need of special prayers for God’s intervention on COVID-19 pandemic, and other challenges bedevilling the country.
He called on Muslims in the State to use the Eid period to show love for both the Muslims and non-Muslims and ensure they observe the directives by medical experts on control of spread of COVID-19.
“I call on you my good people of Southern Senatorial constituency and the entire state to pray for me, Governor Abdullahi Sule and President Muhammadu Buhari, to succeed in delivering goods to the electorates,” Al-Makura said.
