Lawal, a spokesman for Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, said that the NUJ annual Ramadan Lecture of the Lagos Information Chapel has gained prominence due to its focus on issues of national importance.
He appealed to members of the chapel and the public to attend the lecture, saying that they would benefit immensely from doing so.
