Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has enjoined Muslim faithful to use the period of the holy month as an opportunity to engage in sober reflection and absolute return to Allah.

Felicitating with Muslims on the start of the Ramadan fast, the governor said they should not see the month as one of mere mandatory prayer, fasting and Iftar meals, but engage in total abstinence, probing soul-searching, sincere repentance and infinite atonement.

In a message signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Otunba Adedayo Adeneye, he urged them to consecrate their spirit, soul and body, in total submission to Allah.

Amosun also enjoined Muslims to fervently pray for Nigeria, noting that “this period in our nation calls for our collective and individual prayers for the fulfilment of our aspirations and desires as a country and as citizens.

“We must use this holy month, like never before, to ensure that we are truly sober and holy in observing all that is expected of us. By doing this, Allah, in his faithfulness, will accept our sacrifices and answer our prayers.”

The governor wished them a peaceful and fruitful Ramadan.
