The Kogi state governor, Ahmed Usman Ododo, has promised to invest massively in agriculture in order to provide food security for the citizens of the state.

Governor Ododo stated this while hosting  leaders of the Muslim community in Kogi state to the breaking of Ramadan fast at the Government House, Lokoja, Tuesday evening.

He said the state government is aware of the current  economic situation, assuring that his administration would  invest massively in agriculture to feed the  people of the state  in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

While  calling  for compassion among the people of the state, Governor Ododo  noted that lessons of Ramadan which emphasise patience, empathy and forgiveness should not be lost on the people even with the winding down of this year’s Ramadan fast.

He called on the people of the state to unite behind the government of the day, adding that forgiveness and patience remain key lessons of Ramadan.

The governor noted that more can be achieved with unity and compassion for one another irrespective of differences in religious inclinations.

He commended Muslim leaders for sustaining religious tolerance in the state and urged them to continue to pray for the success of those in power, adding that the present administration requires their support and prayers to succeed.
