Muslims have been charged to pray fervently for the present administration in Ogun State to enable it rebuild and transform the state.
Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, gave the charge today at the Lantoro praying ground in Abeokuta during the Eid-eil-Fitri prayer signalling the end of the Ramadan period.
Senator Amosun urged them to always remember people in position of authority in their daily prayers.
He reiterated the determination and commitment of the present administration in the state to implement its cardinal programmes aimed at developing the state economically and socially.
The state governor enjoined them to complement the state government’s efforts towards ensuring peace and tranquility in the state, saying that â€œit is in the atmosphere of peace that development can thrive.â€
