By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan
All Progressives Congress (APC) Oyo South Senatorial District aspirant, Dr Olusola Ayandele on Saturday, tasked Nigerians to coexist with love, peace and unity particularly as it happens that Christians are also in their Lenten season.”
The business mogul gave the task in a special message made available by his Personal Assistant (Media), Mr. Sola Adeleke, which specifically tasked Muslims to use this year’s Ramadan to renew their commitment in the area of piety as well as service of Allah and humanity.
Dr Ayandele stressed in the statement that, “witnessing another Ramadan is a golden opportunity for all and sundry, since the sacred month affords all Islamic faithful a chance of spiritual rebirth as it also ushers in fresh blessings for all mankind.
“It would not be out of place to congratulate Muslim faithful and their brethren in other faith as we all witness another blessed month of Ramadan during which greater amount of blessings and benevolence of God almighty descend upon mankind from Heaven”, he said.
Dr Ayandele added, ” as brothers and sisters, we owe ourselves the duty of using occasions like this to underscore the need to coexist with love, peace and unity particularly as it happens that Christians are also in their Lenten season.”
“We therefore, use this opportunity to congratulate all faith adherents in Oyo state and most especially the constituents of Oyo South Senatorial district who spread across Ibadan North, Ibadan South West, Ibadan North East, Ibadan North West, Ibadan South East, Ido, Ibarapa East, Ibarapa Central and Ibarapa North local government areas of Oyo State wishing hitch-free and spiritually rewarding fasting exercises”.
The APC Oyo South Senatorial District aspirant maintained, “in the spirit of the seasons and in view of the prevailing unfriendly economic situation across the world, The Olusola Ayandele Foundation will soon begin the distribution of food items, daily needs and cash sums among the people of various communities within and outside Oyo South Senatorial district”.
” We will soon make public the details of this in furtherance of intervention programmes of the Foundation established by the Ibarapa-born philanthropist to cater for the needy in the society.”
