Abiodun urges Muslims to uphold tenets of Ramadan

As Muslims celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan, Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has urged them to uphold the lessons and tenets that Ramadan symbolizes.

Abiodun, in a statement by his chief press secretary, Kunle Somorin, noted that Muslims had engaged in the spiritual exercise as directed by Allah for the past one month, calling on the faithful not to do away with love, prayers, unity, and harmony that formed the basis of the holy month.

He further urged them to continue to offer prayers for peace and unity in the country, particularly in the face of security and economic challenges.

Abiodun, who said Eidel- Fitri was a period of celebration for the Muslims who have abstained from eating, drinking, and other pleasures during the day, throughout Ramadan as commanded by Allah, enjoined them to engage in moderate celebration.

The governor added that the present situation in the country calls for sober reflection, stressing that “as you celebrate the end of Ramadan, I urge you to reflect on our situation as a nation and continue to pray for peace and security to return to Nigeria”.

He, however, urged the Muslims to observe COVID- 19 safety protocols and guidelines as they make merry, declaring the pandemic is far from over.

“I want to use this opportunity to urge our Muslim brothers and sisters as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitri, that COVID- 19 is still much around. Hence, they should endeavour to observe the safety protocols and guidelines against the pandemic.

“Also, they should engage in moderate celebration to mark the end of the fasting. The situation in our dear country calls for sober reflection and prayers, therefore, they should not forget to supplicate to the Almighty Allah for peace, tranquillity, unity, and security in the land.”
