Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has congratulated the Muslim community in the country on the successful completion of the month-long Ramadan fasting.
The governor, in a statement by the Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Mr. Bolaji Tunji, prayed that Allah should accept their supplications, even beyond the holy month.
While calling for spiritual rebirth among the Islamic faithful, Governor Ajimobi enjoined them to imbibe the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammed on the essence of Ramadan fasting.
Governor Ajimobi also admonished the faithful to use the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations to pray for the unity and peaceful co-existence of the country’s ethnic groups, and shun divisive tendencies capable of drawing back the country’s wheel of progress.
He commended the spirit of oneness and peaceful co-existence among all religious adherents in the state, urging them to sustain the tempo so that the current administration would have ample time to concentrate on its efforts at repositioning the state.
