Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has congratulated the Muslim Umah on the successful completion of fasting during the Holy month of Ramadan, charging insurgents to sheath their sword in adherence to the teachings of Prophet Mohammed.
In a press release by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs. Olufunmilayo Wakama, Amosun admonished adherents of Islam to continue to pray for peace and stability of the nation, particularly during this trying period.
The governor, who noted that lslam is a religion of peace, enjoined those behind the bombings in parts of the country to sheath their sword in the spirit of the season and in adherence to the teachings of Prophet Mohammed so as to find peaceful means to express their grievances.
“As Muslims, we must not allow the significance of the season to be lost on us. We have fasted and prayed in the Holy month for Nigeria so that the nation can overcome its current challenges. I enjoin you all to continue to demonstrate this spirituality as you support and show love to one another,” he said.
Amosun wished the Muslim Ummah a joyous celebration.
