By Abdulkareem Haruna
Borno State Governor Babagana Umara Zulum has extended Easter greetings to Christians in Borno State and the rest of Nigeria.
In a statement released by his spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, Zulum called on citizens in Borno State to pray for the full restoration of peace in the state. He also urged them to pray for the success of his second term in office, which will end on May 29, 2023.
Zulum expressed his hope that his administration will be guided by God to deliver on numerous infrastructural projects, programs, and policies that will improve living standards in ways that surpass what was achieved during his first term.
“On behalf of the Borno State Government, I heartily felicitate with our Christian brothers and sisters in Borno and across Nigeria at this Easter season,” Zulum said in Gusau’s statement. “I urge security agencies to sustain their good efforts in preserving security during the festivities and far beyond.”
In addition to his Easter message, Governor Babagana Umara Zulum urged celebrants to reach out to family members, friends, neighbors, and other community members who may be in need of help.
He also called on the people of Borno State to commit their second term to prayers for the full restoration of peace, the safe resettlement of citizens still displaced, the revival of means of livelihoods in all communities previously affected by insurgents’ destructions, and the strengthening of economies in areas less affected by attacks in all senatorial zones.
Governor Zulum further requested prayers for guidance in undertaking hundreds of meaningful infrastructural projects, programs, and policies that will have a positive impact on all 27 local government areas. “As we round up our first term, I want to specially request that all the good people of Borno State commit our second term to prayers,” Zulum said.
