Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed who recently performed the official opening of two Friday mosques he helped to build, with a promised to build more mosques and churches for Muslims and Christians communities across the state, has been described as a leader for all faiths.
The Governor’s Special Assistant on New Media, Lawal Muazu Bauchi stated this in a statement at the weekend.
He explained that immediately the Governor assumed office “the first thing he did was paying visits to religious leaders and institutions.
“The Governor has so far demonstrated by words and deeds that he is also a religious leader who believes in the important role religion could play in the lives of the people.
“He respects and gives religious leaders honour and they equally respect and honour him for the interest he shows in religion.
“Bauchi State is indeed lucky to have a governor who places great emphasis on religious matters and who accord every citizen the right to hold his religious beliefs without fear of molestation or abuse.
“All citizens of goodwill should therefore appreciate the governor’s deep religious conviction by exhibiting mutual tolerance and accommodation”, Lawal Muazu Bauchi said.
