Ramadan: Aregbesola Tasks Muslims


Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has called on Muslims to spend the 30-day Ramadan period to offer special prayers for the stability of the country.

The governor made the call on Sunday in Osogbo in a special Ramadan message to Muslims ahead of the fasting period.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the call was contained in a statement signed by the governor’s Director, Bureau of Communications and Strategy, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon.

Aregbesola attributed the “unbridled insurgencies in parts of the country” to the insatiable quest for wealth and lack of restraint.

He noted that the failure to exercise restraint and have the fear of God were responsible for the nation’s many woes.

The governor urged Muslims to move closer to Allah and love one another as well as their neighbours for a peaceful co-existence.

“Ramadan is a month of self-restraint and it is important that Nigerians, especially Muslims, take the full advantage of the blessed month.

“Lack of restraint had led us to various vices, and many of the problems confronting us as a country today can be traced to lack of restraint,” he said.

Aregbesola pointed out that this had led to many Nigerian leaders leaving their people in the lurch, thereby failing to provide good leadership and leaving them in abject poverty.
