I wish to felicitate with the entire Muslim faithfuls in Osun State in particular and Nigeria in general on the commencement of the Holy month of Ramadan. It is another period of prayers and holy living as we all intercede prayerfully for the restoration of prosperity in the land.
This period generally demands sacrificial spirit from all Nigerians as we look unto Almighty Allah to bestow his love and care upon us and help us resolve most of the challenges facing us.
It behoves on all of us as patriotic Nigerians to complement our spiritual efforts by allowing our actions to illuminate the Ramadan passion for peaceful coexistence in the country.
I particularly rejoice with the leadership of the Muslim community, Chief Imams, Alfas and my brothers and sisters for this year fasting period. I pray that the Almighty Allah will strengthen us in purity and crown our efforts with grace.
Together we shall join hands to return our State to prosperity and genuine development.
