Ekiti and Lagos states governors, Kayode Fayemi and Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have felicitated with Muslim faithful across the country as they celebrate Eid-el-fitri, which marks end of the month-long Ramadan fasting and prayers.
Sanwo-Olu, in his Eid-el-fitri message urged Muslims in Lagos State and across the country to continue on the path of spirituality and peaceful co-existence.
The Governor said the occasion of Eid-el-fitri is very significant to Muslims across the world as one of the major pillars of Islam, which teaches abstinence from worldly pleasures, steadfastness in prayers and total submission to the will of Allah in accordance with the Quranic injunctions.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, urged the Muslim Ummah to continue to offer more prayers for continued peace and stability in Nigeria, adding that all hands must be on deck to address the growing challenge of insecurity in the country.
While Kayode Fayemi in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, noted that witnessing this year’s Eid el Fitri has crowned a long period of supplication and adherence to an important pillar in Islam.
He urged Muslims not to allow the lessons of sacrifice, humility, piety and submission to the will of the Almighty Allah learnt during the Ramadan season to go in vain.
Fayemi called on Muslims and adherents of other faiths to always pray for peace, progress, development and prosperity of Ekiti State and Nigeria.
