As the annual Ramadan fasting comes to an end, member, House of Representatives-Elect representing Ayedaade/Irewole/Isokan Federal Constituency, Hon Lanre Oladebo, has advised Muslim Faithful in his Federal Constituency, Osun State and Nigerians in general to reflect on the essence of the holy month of Ramadan and its message of tolerance as well as forgiveness of sins.
Hon Oladebo gave this advice in his congratulatory message issued by his media team to felicitate Muslims on the occasion of Idel-Fitri celebration holding on (Friday) globally.
He enjoined Muslims not to ignore the lessons of Ramadan by keeping the virtues of the Holy Months and tolerating one another.
Hon Oladebo in the message said, “Since Ramadan fasting symbolizes the period of spiritual rejuvenation, I urge our Muslim brothers and sisters to continue to put into practice the teachings of Prophet Muhammed.”
According to him, “part of such teachings is to be our brother’s keepers and ensure service to humanity. May our prayers during the holy month be answered and may our good deeds be rewarded by Allah.
“It is also important for us to move closer to Allah, even after the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations and eschew actions and deeds that are against His will and commandment. I wish everyone joyous and accident-free celebrations.”
The Apomu-born politician said further that, ”I urge the faithful to use the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations to pray for the unity and peaceful co-existence of all the ethnic groups in the country as well.”
He commended the spirit of oneness and peaceful co-existence as well as demonstration of support by the people to the incumbent Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP)-led administration in Osun State while urging the people not to relent in demonstrating their unalloyed support to the governor of the state, Senator Nurudeen Jackson Ademola Adeleke and entire party.
“I want to assure you all once again that, I will not let you down with the confidence you reposed in me to represent you at the green chamber by making sure that sharing of dividends of democracy reach out to all nook and cranny of my constituency.
“I thank you all in my Federal Constituency and the entire state for maintaining peaceful co-existence and for your commitment to the growth and development of the State,”Hon Oladebo said.
