He has also urged them to pray to ALLAH to always direct the leadership of the country a right and those charged with the responsibility of conducting the 2015 elections to conduct a process that will be acceptable to all stakeholders as well as strengthen the unity of the country.


Governor Dickson, who gave this advice in his Sallah message to the Muslims, stated that, the nation needs the collective prayers and unity of purpose to not only forge ahead, but continue to occupy the enviable position of the giant of Africa in all its ramifications.

The Bayelsa State chief executive also called for collaborative efforts in the ongoing fight against terrorism, describing the security situation in some parts of the Country as unacceptable and contrary to the dreams and aspirations of the Nation?s founding fathers.

Describing Islam as a religion of peace, he enjoined the practitioners to follow the teachings of Prophet Mohammed, (SAW) that centres on tolerance, peace and brotherliness.

?Irrespective of our religions and tribes, what should be uppermost in our minds is the unity of Nigeria, since we don?t have any other country to call our own.

The Governor, however, expressed gratitude to Muslims in the State for their ever supportive and peaceful disposition, calling on them to maintain the existing relationship between the Muslims and practitioners of other religions.
