Senator Abiola Ajimobi, wishes Islam adherents across the country a joyous and crises-free festival of fast-breaking, otherwise known as Eid al-Fitr, following the completion of the month-long Ramadan.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka, urged Muslims to be modest in their celebrations and to be on their guard against terrorists who might want to wreak havoc during the celebration.
Ajimobi said, “Let me on this occasion congratulate my Muslim brothers and sisters on the successful completion of the Ramadan. It is my hope that the mandatory annual religious obligation will renew our strength and faith in Allah.
“I want to enjoin Islam faithful to maintain their piety beyond the fasting period and rededicate themselves to the worship of Allah and obedience to His injunctions, especially at this period when our country needs the prayers of the saints.
“They should not be tempted to go back to the various vices that they jettisoned during the holy month. I pray that Allah should grant the requests and prayers offered for themselves and families, Oyo State, and the country at large.”
The Governor expressed the belief that with the dedication and commitment of the Muslim community to the Ramadan as one of the pillars of Islam, the country would soon witness a socio-economic rebirth and peace.
Ajimobi called on the people of the state to continue to support his administration in its efforts aimed at taking the State out of economic doldrums, assuring that there would be light at the end of the tunnel
