Oyo State governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, has felicitated the Muslim Ummah in the state on the completion of the Holy Month of Ramadan and the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.

The governor congratulated the Muslim faithful for witnessing the 1st Day of the month of Shawwal.

He prayed to Allah to accept the worship of the Muslim Ummah as an act of Ibadah, just as he called on them to use the opportunity of the season to make more supplications to Allah SWT over the situation of the state and the country.

He equally charged residents of the state to be security-conscious before, during and after the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations and report any suspicion to security agencies through the State Emergency Number, 615.

He said: “I congratulate the Muslim Ummah in Oyo State on witnessing the 1st Day of the Shawwal and the successful completion of the Ramadan Fasting.

“It is my prayer that God accepts their worship as Ibadah and grants answers to all their prayers.

“I want to call on all Muslims and all residents to continue to make supplications for the country and Oyo State.

“As an administration, we have been doing all we can to address the challenges facing our people and to stimulate the economy of the state.
At this critical period, that should be the focus of all leaders at all levels of government.

“But I also know that after we all might have done all we can, it is imperative to continue to hand over our affairs to God Almighty, who is able to turn difficult situations around.

“Let me also use this opportunity to charge Oyo State residents to be watchful and vigilant before, during and after the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations.

“Please, be security-conscious and report any suspicion with regards to security to the security agencies through the Oyo State Emergency Number, 615.

“Happy Eid-el-Fitri.”
