Governor Abiola Ajimobi has urged Nigerians to pray for the much needed peace, progress and economic emancipation of the country.
The governor in his congratulatory message to Islamic adherents on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival also charged Muslims across Nigeria to imbibe the spirit of togetherness, peaceful co-existence and love towards one another as exemplified by Holy Prophet Muhammed (SAW).
He emphasized in the message by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka, that with the present situation in the country, it is glaring that “only in an atmosphere of peace and love could the people thrive and attain their potential,”saying,the country needs these attributes to achieve the desired greatness.
“Let us use the period of this festival to pray for the peace, progress and economic emancipation of our dear country. We should pray for the safe return of those on holy pilgrimage to Mecca, as well as for other Muslims from every part of the world,”he said.
The governor stressed the need for “Muslim brothers and sisters to remember those in the Holy Land in their prayers as they proceed to Mount Arafat to have a peaceful and accident-free prayer session”.
Governor Ajimobi then enjoined Nigerians to continue to exhibit love towards their fellow human beings and re-dedicate their selves to “the service of Almighty Allah and humanity, as demonstrated by Prophet Muhammed (SAW) during his earthly sojourn.”
He however lauded the people of Oyo State for their understanding and continued support for his administration in its quest to redefine governance and take the state to greater heights.
“I want to assure the citizenry that this administration will continue to introduce people-friendly policies and explore other avenues that would bail the state out of its current economic doldrums”.
