Religious Tolerance: Obaseki Breaks Ramadan Fast With Otaru Of Auchi, Commends Him For Support For Good Governance

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has expressed appreciation to the Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Aliru Momoh Ikelebe III, for his support, prayers and valuable advice, which has helped him carries out his duties in the last seven and half years.

Obaseki said this at the palace of the traditional ruler when he led other government top functionaries to break the Ramadan fast with the Otaru and some other traditional leaders from Edo North Senatorial District of the State.

The governor said it is not coincidental for Ramadan, Lent, Easter and Sallah to occur in the same period, noting that it is remarkable as God doesn’t make mistakes.

“It has become our tradition to come and break the fast with you during the annual Ramadan fast. We have done this since I became governor in 2017. Thank God Almighty for giving us good health and a long life to be here again. We have come to felicitate and pray with you during this year’s Ramadan again.

“We have done every year except during COVID-19. This is particularly significant for me as this is the last time that I will be coming here to break the Ramadan fast with you as a governor”, Obaseki said.

He added, “This is significant because we are celebrating Ramadan and Lent seasons at the same time. Coincidentally, we would celebrate Easter and Sallah at the same time. It is remarkable as God doesn’t make mistakes. There must be a reason for this. The God we serve will continue to have mercy upon us and protect us in these difficult times. We pray that he hears our prayers as a people and a Country.”

On the Otaru’s support for good governance, the governor said: “We can’t appreciate you enough for the support you have shown us in government in the last 8 years. The stability we have enjoyed and the frank advice you give us every time has been valuable.”

The Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Aliru Momoh Ikelebe III thanked the governor and his entourage for coming to celebrate with him, noting that the governor has been sincere with his intentions.

“May Almighty Allah grant us all sincerity as many of you celebrate with us. Thank God you have been here every Ramadan to break the fast with us. It is really thoughtful. This has built stronger relationships and should be sustained.”
