Urges Support for Less Privileged

Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has extended his warm greetings to the Muslim Ummah as the holy month of Ramadan begins.

Oyebanji emphasized that the commencement of the holy month and the opportunity to witness it are blessings from the Almighty Allah, underscoring the importance of not taking these gifts for granted.

The Governor in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Yinka Oyebode, urged the Muslim Ummah to utilize the period for prayers, worship, alms giving and support for the poor and the less privileged in the society in order to receive blessings from Allah.

Governor Oyebanji described the 30-day fast as a significant pillar in Islam, noting that observing this spiritual obligation strengthens the bond between the faithful and the Creator, fostering deeper piety.

While noting that Ramadan offers an opportunity for spiritual rebirth, renewal and rejuvenation which creates a strong bond between the Almighty Allah and the faithful, the Governor urged Muslim faithful to be more steadfast in their prayers for Ekiti State and Nigeria so that greater level of peace, progress and prosperity can be achieved.

According to the Governor, the rigours of participation in fasting should bear positive fruit in their relationship with Allah and fellow human beings.

“I pray that the Muslim faithful be rewarded with the abundant blessings that come with the month and protect us to successfully complete the fast and retain the blessings of the holy month,” the Governor added.
