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 meals, but engage in total abstinence, probing soul-searching, sincere repentance, and infinite atonement.

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

Urging Muslims to fervently pray for Nigeria, the governor said: “this period in our nation calls for our collective and individual prayers for the fulfillment 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,” he added.
