A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC in Abeokuta South, Dr. Ololade Kehinde has felicitated with Nigerians, especially Muslim faithful as they celebrate Eid-el-fitri, which marks end of the month-long Ramadan fasting and prayers.
Ololade in his Eid-el-fitri message released on Wednesday urged Muslims in Ogun State and across the country to continue on the path of spirituality and peaceful co-existence.
He said the occasion of Eid-el-fitri is very significant to Muslims across the world as one of the major pillars of Islam, which teaches abstinence from worldly pleasures, steadfastness in prayers and total submission to the will of Allah in accordance with the Quranic injunctions.
Ololade urged the Muslim Ummah to continue to offer more prayers for continued peace and stability in Nigeria.
He prayed for Ogun residents to witness and celebrate more Eid-el-fitri in good health and prosperity.
“Today, I join millions of people around the world, to wish our Muslim brothers and sisters in Ogun State and in Nigeria happy Eid-el-fitri.
“For the Muslims, Eid-el-fitri is very unique. It is a feast to mark the end of a month-long spiritual renewal after thirty days of fasting, prayers and other religious acts.
“Ramadan was a period that you denied yourselves the worldly pleasures, turned to your creator for total cleansing and upheld other religious values.
He therefore called on the people of Ogun State to also use the opportunity to pray for the Governor of Ogun as to continue to take the state to a greater height
