Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun state has felicitated with Muslim faithful in the state and around the world on the commencement of this year’s Ramadan fast, saying the observance of fasting amidst the battle against coronavirus is not a coincidence.
He noted that the pandemic ravaging the world challenges humanity and its faith in God, urging Muslims to hold fast to their faith in their creator in both times of prosperity and hardship in order to validate the sincerity of their faith; adding that considering the huge blessings that come with the holy month, Nigerians and the world would come out of this war, stronger and better.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan yesterday, he urged the faithful to seek maximum benefits of Ramadan by engaging in more acts of worship that would draw them closer to God. He added that the current situation in the country made it more imperative for people to reach out and show love to the vulnerable and poor. He noted that the lockdown directive imposed to check the spread of the disease was still in force and warned against violation of the order, stressing that violators would not be spared. “Regular activities during Ramadan such as congregational prayers including Taraweeh, Tafseer, public lectures, and other religious gatherings are suspended.”
Also, Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has urged Muslims to remember to pray fervently for health workers and other caregivers who are at the front line of the fight against COVID-19. This was contained in Ramadan message made available to The Guardian yesterday.
