Bello charges FCT residents to pray for smooth transition
Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Muhammad Bello has called on the Christian faithful and other residents of the territory to use the occasion of Easter celebrations to pray for peace and smooth transition.
The minister said the need to pray for unity is especially significant for the FCT which is the center and symbol of Nigeria’s unity, just as he reminded residents that they have an obligation to demonstrate that unity especially during the Easter celebrations.
He therefore called on them to use the joyous occasion to exhibit harmony amongst Nigerians by embracing and promoting all those virtues that bring Nigerians together.
Bello also used the occasion to remind residents of the upcoming inauguration of Mr President on May 29, 2019.
He urged them to pray for a smooth transition into the next political dispensation and informed them that as residents of the host city, they were obliged to play their roles for the successful hosting of what will be a major international event.
He therefore called on them to be hospitable to guests who will be visiting Abuja, keep the environment clean and obey all extant rules and regulations especially traffic laws.
The minister emphasized that there is a need to promote Abuja as a hospitable and tourism friendly destination. This, he said will further boost the economy of the FCT and generate employment.
He however cautioned residents to eschew actions that might lead to the breakdown of law and order and not hesitate to report any suspicious activities to the law enforcement agencies.
