A frontline All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant in Oyo State, Engineer Oyedele Hakeem Alao on Sunday, congratulated Muslims in the state on the successful conclusion of the Ramadan fast.
The APC governorship aspirant in his Sallah message issued by his Media Office to mark the end of the Ramadan fasting period, tasked Muslim faithful to continue to pray for Oyo State and Nigeria in general.
Engineer Alao while congratulating Muslims on completing what he termed “the spiritually significant month of sacrifice,” stressed the importance of putting the virtues of Islam into practice beyond the fasting season.
Charging Muslim faithful to reflect on the importance of Ramadan in becoming good ambassadors of Islam at all times, Engineer Alao said the lessons of the fasting should continue to be the watchword of the fateful
“Religion should be the moral compass for all believers in their public and personal lives, if people allow the teachings of their religions to influence their conducts, problems such as corruption, which diverts public funds to private pockets, would have been eliminated in our society”, he said.
Engineer Alao added, ” in the last one month, I observed the piety and the spirit of giving which is associated with the month and, therefore, urge our Muslim brothers and sisters, members of our great party, APC and the entire people of the state, to remain their brother’s keeper so as to make the society better for it.”
“I charge them to continue in a life of prayers for the state. Being the last Ramadan before the 2023 general elections, I call on our Muslim brethren and indeed the good loving people of our dear state to continue to pray for the peaceful and successful conduct of the elections.”
