The governor wrote on his official Facebook handle;
“Today, we hosted the Muslim community in the state to a banquet in the spirit of Eid-el-fitr celebratioln.
The banquetl brought Muslim brothers and sisters in Imo State as well as their Christian counterparts together in a joyous mood as it provided them the opportunity to interact and rub minds.
Speaking at the banquet, I described the Eid-el-fitr celebration as a special day for the Muslims all over the world after many days of fasting and enjoined both Christians and Muslims to learn how to live together; with emphasis that Imo State is a peaceful state.
Citizens of Imo State must imbibe the spirit of co-existence and love for one another and I thank God that in spite of the challenges of the past one year, we are all alive today to celebrate the Eid-el-Fitr.
The invitation extended to the Muslim community to the banquet is to reassure them that they should go about their normal businesses without the fear of molestation.
I assured that the crisis of yesterday will never repeat itself in Imo State again as there will be no more violence in the State any longer.
The security agencies are friends of the public. It is only the bandits that are enemies of the security agencies hence wherever they are found they will not be spared.
I thank God for a peaceful 2021 Eid-el-fitr celebrations in Imo State, and I wish all Muslim celebrants Baraka de Sallah.
