 Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has reiterated the need for all Nigerians, especially Kwarans to embrace peace and tolerance in dealing with themselves.

AbdulRazaq, who made this call while giving his Eid El Adha message, on Tuesday, at the Ilorin Eid praying ground, Ilorin, emphasized that there was no alternative to peace.

 Speaking with reporters shortly before paying his Eid homage to the Emir of Ilorin, Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, the governor said that development occurs only in an atmosphere of peace, mutual tolerance and understanding.

 “It is a message of peace. There is no alternative to peace. This is a state of harmony and we should let it remain like that. Our founding fathers worked so hard to entrench peace in the state, and we will continue to promote peace and unity in our dear state,” AbdulRazaq told reporters in Ilorin, the state capital.

“It is a new frontier. Security wise, we have seen improvements across the country. We are certain that things will continue to get better.”

 AbdulRazaq commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the fight against insecurity in different parts of the country, saying, the current efforts had led to glaring improvements and checkmated agents of insecurity in Nigeria.

 “We thank the President for deploying all the arsenals he could. We appreciate all institutions, security agencies, traditional rulers and all our people for putting all hands on deck to make sure that we combat the alarming rate of insecurity,” he added.

 AbdulRazaq urged Kwarans to use the occasion of Sallah to look inward and preach peace and unity, and support one another as brothers.
