Fayose, Obaseki preach peace, justice during Sallah

Kamarudeen Ogundele and Alexander Okere

The Ekiti State Governor, Chief Ayodele Fayose, and his Edo State counterpart, Godwin Obaseki, have called for the enthronement of peace and justice in the country, as Muslim faithful mark the end of the Ramadan period and celebrate the Eid-el-Fitri Festival.

In his Sallah message in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose urged Muslims to imbibe the lessons of self-denial and sacrifices the Ramadan teaches the faithful.

“We thank God for witnessing the end of another Ramadan. I pray that the sacrifices made during the period will not be in vain. Also, we must not forget to always put into practice all the lessons taught us by the Holy Quran as also emphasised by Prophet Mohammed.

“We must also allow peace to reign in our state and country at large. And as we approach election time in our dear state, I urge our Muslim brothers and sisters to go out on the Election Day to exercise their civic duty. Those involved in the conduct of the poll too must ensure that justice is done to all,” he said.

Also, Obaseki has urged all Muslims to sustain the values of Ramadan and support a prosperous state where everyone could achieve their dreams.

Obaseki, in his Sallah message, advised the Muslim faithful to see the period as an opportunity to deepen their relationship with Allah, promote a life of sacrifice, charity and love for one another.
