Led by Alhaji Yakubu Otobo, the leader of the Muslim community in Bayelsa State, a visit was paid to Douye Diri, the Governor of the state at the government house according to information posted on the Bayelsa Government New Media Facebook page.
Diri while hosting them to a banquet, called for unity and peaceful coexistence among all faith in the state and country at large.
He therefore commended them for their support towards his government through co-operation and understating they have shown.
While noting that there is the need to maintain the existing peace being enjoyed in the state, he condemned the maiming of any particular group based on ethnic or religious sentiment. He tasked them to ensure that they do not allow ethnic crisis arise amongst them.
He therefore joined Bayelsans in wishing them all barka de sallah.
