The Chief Executive Officer of Dolphin Properties Nig Ltd and a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Executive Committe (NEC), Barr. Taiwo Kabir Shote has felicitated with Muslim faithful in Ogun State and Nigeria generally on the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The soft-spoken Ijebu Ode born legal expert cum politician in a message, in Ijebu Ode on Tuesday, congratulated the Muslim faithful on the completion of the 29-day fast, stressing that the spiritual exercise had drawn them closer to Allah.
Shote, the 2019 PDP House of Reps Candidate for Ijebu Central Federal Constituency, admonished Muslims to put the teachings of the holy month to good use in all their undertakings.
He urged Muslims and adherents of other religions to live in love, peace and harmony with one another, stressing that “it is only through unity of purpose and togetherness that we can surmount the myriads of issues confronting us as a people and nation”.
While noting that Ramadan was a season of discipline and sacrifice, the PDP chieftain urged Muslims to celebrate Eid-el-Fitr with modesty in view of the ravaging insecurity which has disrupted socio- economic activities in the country.
Speaking further, Shote urged Muslims not to relent in contributing to the religious harmony being enjoyed in Ogun State and hoped that the same permeates the country.
“ I congratulate the Muslim Ummah on the Eid-el- Fitri celebration, and pray that Almighty Allah will accept our prayers, grant all our heart desires and preserve our lives to witness many more celebrations,” he added.
