Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, has warned shylock market men and women to shun profiteering by arbitrary increasing the prices of their commodities during and after the Ramadan periods.

He said the special month of Ramadan provides ample opportunity for people to seek closer ties and blessings of God through sacrifice and piety, and not by exploiting fellow beings through unjust and ungodly price increases.

While felicitating with the Muslim ummah across the state for witnessing yet another Ramadan, Governor Sani Bello described the period as a period of spiritual intimacy with Allah and urged all Muslims to renew their faith and loyalty to their Creator.

In a statement issued on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Malam Jibrin Baba Ndace, Governor Sani Bello urged Muslims to seek maximum benefits from the month of Ramadan by imbibing the teachings and exemplary lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

“Fasting period provides that moment where Allah grants the wishes of his servants, as such, we must rededicate ourselves in prayers and asked God to intervene in our quest for a better life here on earth and hereafter,” he said.

The Governor called on the citizens to pray for greater strength and economic prosperity of the state and country stressing that, despite passing through difficult moments, government is working relentlessly to proffer answers to the nation’s numerous challenges.

He also called on well-to-do in the society to extend their goodwill to the less privileged during this Holy Month and thereafter.

The Governor urged the Muslim ummah to pray for quick recovery and safe return of President Buhari from his current medical trio to England.
