The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has advised Nigerians to be law-abiding and seek the country’s unity.

The Governor made this call on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitr celebration.

Uzodinma appealed to Nigerians to ensure “religion is not a barrier to their cohabitation.”

He said they should take advantage of the spiritual blessings from the period of fasting and reflection to unite and seek the unity of the country in the spirit of the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The governor said: “As Muslims in Imo, we must be united. As Muslims in Nigeria, we must also be united. Irrespective of religion, we should be our brothers and sisters keepers. I join the leadership of the Muslims in Imo State to unite. If you unite, you will see the benefit to our state and country. Also, be law-abiding, both Muslims and Christians.”
