Eid el-Fitr: Akinlade congratulates Muslims, urges support for Amosun

The Baba Adinni of Yewa land in Ogun State, Hon. Abiodun Akinlade, has congratulated Muslims in Nigeria especially in the Gateway State on the occasion of the 2018 Eid-el-Fitr celebration, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Akinlade, who is a leading governorship aspirant in Ogun State on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), expressed the uniqueness of this year’s celebration which coincided with the 25th Anniversary of the annuled June 12,1993 election, adding that the spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness championed by President Muhammadu Buhari has renewed 

In a statement issued in Owode, Ogun State,  Akinlade, who is a former House of Representatives member for Yewa South/Ipokia federal constituency between 2003 and 2015, urged Muslims to inculcate the lessons learnt during the Ramadan fast by positively impacting on their neighbours and the larger society.

While canvassing support for the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the guber aspirant said the governor has changed the face Ogun State, adding that he is ready to consolidate the giant strides of the incumbent administration through a sustainable continuity. 

The statement reads: “After our strict observation of the injunctions of Almighty Allah through our self-denial epitomised by fasting and prayers and by offering Zakat to the less-privileged, I want to urge the Muslim  faithful not to forget the lessons we have learnt and keep to it especially in alms-giving, compassion and love for fellow men.

“As we celebrate Eid-el-Fitri, it is my hope and prayer that Ramadan’s spiritual lessons and the Holy Prophet’s teachings will remain with us all for the benefit and greater glory of our dear state, Ogun, and the nation at large,” he said.
