Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has urged Nigerians to shun divisive tendencies but rather be committed to peaceful coexistence in the country.
Ajimobi made this appeal in his commemorative message on the occasion of this year’s Ed-el-Fitri celebration.
The message released on Ajimobi’s behalf by his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Mr Bolaji Tunji, specifically charged Muslims to be their brothers’ keeper and be irresolute to the service of humanity.
He further charged Muslims to uphold the spiritual rejuvenation of the Ramadan period and not return to sinful habits.
“Since Ramadan fasting symbolises spiritual rejuvenation, it is expected that our Muslim brothers and sisters will continue to adhere to the teachings of Prophet Muhammed. Part of this is to be our brother’s keepers and ensure service to humanity.
Besides, it is important for us to move closer to Allah, even after the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations and eschew things that are against His will and commandment. We should not be tempted to go back to sinful habits.”
“Leaders in all the tiers of government also deserve to be assisted with prayers so that they can lead us aright and move the country forward in all ramifications,” Ajimobi said
