The Ikire residence of Osun State Commissioner for Finance, Mr Bola Oyebamiji was on Wednesday turned to a Mecca of some sort as the league of Imams in Ayedaade/Irewole/Isokan Federal Constituency held a special prayer session for him.
The prayer session was led by the Chief Imam of Ikire land, Sheik Yunnus Mohammed Raji Ajibade with the support of the Chief Imams of Gbongan, Apomu, Ikoyi, Orileowu, Odemomu, while other residents of the federal constituency also came to join in the prayer session.
The prayer which lasted for several hours witnessed the Muslim community of the federal constituency praying for the entire family of the Ikire born politician, noting that almighty Allah has used the family to bless the constituency so much through Mr Bola Oyebamiji.
They also prayed that God should continue to be his protection in all his undertakings, especially as he continues to assist the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to steer the ship of the state.
Some of the Islamic clerics who spoke during the prayer session described the banker turned politician, as a very merciful man who has dedicated himself to the service of God and humanity in everything he does.
They said they have decided to organise the prayer session for him without his knowledge because they want Allah to continue to shower on him more favour and protection from above and for Allah to continue to pave the way for the growth of the state under the leadership of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
Speaking shortly after the prayer session in his name, Mr Bola Oyebamiji who is the Balogun Muslumi of the federal constituency thanked the clerics for their show of love and affection through the special prayer session which was brought to his domain.
He added that he sees the prayer session as a challenge for him to continue to present himself forward for the service of God and humanity with any given opportunity and at anytime.
