The party affirmed that although notable individuals and private organizations have made several donations in support of the state government to battle the pandemic but stressed that as long as the battle continues wealthy individuals, private bodies, as well as associations must continue to rally support for the government so that efforts made would not have less impact.
Meanwhile the party has felicitated with Muslim faithfuls across the state on the occasion of this year’s Ramadhan and enjoined all Muslims to be more fervent in prayers as nothing is too big for God to do.
