The Enugu Muslim Community leader urged other states to emulate Gov Ugwuanyi’s exemplary leadership style, saying: “We are all from Adam and Eve, we are one, and in unity, without division in politics and religion, we will build a greater Nigeria”.

Alhaji Sambo added: “I want to say that this is not the first time Gov Ugwuanyi is extending this kind of fellowship to the Muslim Community in Enugu State. The governor in his usual way normally sends things such as food items and what have you to us. On most occasions, Gov Ugwuanyi visits in person. So, I want to say that we are highly delighted. Some of the significances of Eid-el-Kabir are sacrifice, unity, obedience and trust. I want to use this opportunity to say that the Muslim Community in Enugu State has strong trust in the leadership of His Excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
