Eid-el Fitri: Gov Abiodun congratulates Muslims, urges continuous prayers for peace and unity

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has felicitated with Muslims on the successful completion of Ramadan and the Eid-el Fitri celebration.

In an Eid-el Fitri message personally signed by him, the governor also urged them to continue to pray and work for the peace and unity of the country.

The message runs thus:

I felicitate with our dear Muslim brothers and sisters on this spiritual occasion as we join them to mark the end of Ramadan with Eid el Fitri celebration.

I want to specially congratulate the entire Muslim community in Ogun State on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.

The sacrifices you have all made during the holy month of Ramadan should draw everyone closer to the Almighty God. I enjoin all our Muslim brothers and sisters to draw enduring lessons from the holy month of Ramadan, which include personal sacrifices and self denial. I want to also seize this medium to call on you all to emulate the good virtues  and teachings of Prophet Mohammed.

I would also like to appeal to our members of the Islamic faith to see beyond all artificial divisions including minor ethnic and religious differences in society and abide strictly with the teachings of the holy Koran as propagated by the Holy Prophet Mohammed.

Peace is very essential to the development of any nation. We should all, therefore, continue to pray and work for the peace and unity of the nation. Let us display the spirit of oneness and stay strong together regardless of the diverse difficulties and challenges, so that we can achieve our goals. We should focus on the things that bind us together, and jettison the ones that are capable of dividing us.

On behalf of my family, the good people and Government of Ogun State, I heartily rejoice with all the citizens and residents of our dear state as we all celebrate Eid El Fitri.

Happy Eid El Fitri to you all.

Signed

Prince (Dr.) Dapo Abiodun, MFR.

Executive Governor of Ogun State.
