Adebule preaches love, piety, tolerance, peaceful existence
Lagos State deputy governor, Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has called on Nigerians, especially residents, to sustain the existing love, tolerance and peaceful co-existence among them.
In her goodwill message yesterday to mark the end of the one-month Ramadan fast, Adebule submitted that the appeal was imperative to enhance good governance.
She urged Muslims to imbibe the tenets of the exercise which she listed as fear of God, love for one another, tolerance, equality, obedience, holiness as well as discipline and care for human beings irrespective of religious and ethnic affiliations.
While congratulating the faithful on the successful observance of the religious duty, the deputy governor enjoined them to strengthen their faith in God and shun every sinful act forthwith.
Adebule said: “As we celebrate Eid-el-Fitr, let me congratulate our Muslim brothers and sisters for God’s mercy that has seen us to the end of the month. I want to specifically urge you to keep faith with your Maker and fear the Almighty Allah.
“Those sins you have moved away from during the Ramadan, please don’t go back to them again. Say your prayers regularly and always remember to pray for your country and our dear state.
“Let us unite and build a very strong nation that our children will be proud of. I pray that the Almighty Allah will not deny us the reward of the fast.” She noted that Nigeria’s democracy has come to stay, adding that Nigerians stand to benefit more under a united nation.
Adebule lauded Islamic organisations for their conduct during the holy month, stressing that more development would crystallise in a peaceful and calm environment. She urged support for the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode administration in its quest to further transform the state.
