Group tasks Muslims on virtues of peace, tolerance
Executive Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Sopeyin Ganiyu Oluremi, has said those that have excess must show gratitude by helping others aside exhibiting total submission to Allah’s commandments.
Speaking at a Ramadan Tafsir, organised by the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vangaurd, to sensitize adherents and pray for continuity in office of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, the SUBEB boss thanked the group for their tireless efforts and resolve to mobilise over five million votes for the Lagos State governor to continue in office beyond 2019.
He urged the people to get their PVCs, saying it is their power to guarantee the transformation of the state.Sopenyin said, “To all my Muslim brothers and sisters, I just want to use this opportunity to greet all of you that as we commence the Ramadan month and with all the lectures we have heard, we are doing this to be in tune with Allah and to be in sync with the kind of supplication that we want to give and we know 30 days out of 365 days are not enough to really show our total submission to Allah.
“What I just want to say is that the important thing in about 30 days that we have in Ramadan is to show love to ourselves, also show love to our neighbours and mobilized for the continuity of good governance in Lagos State.
Also speaking, State Coordinator of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard Hon. Seyi Bamigbade said, “You need to love yourself first before you can even show love to another person. So, when we have in excess, we must show the attitude of gratitude to be able to give to others.”
He said since Ambode assumed office, the guiding philosophy of his administration had been about inclusion and to positively touch lives, admonishing Muslims to imbibe the spirit of giving selflessly to others at all times.
