Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has admonished Muslims to reflect on all the teachings during the holy month of Ramadan at all times.
The governor also assured the people of the state of free and fair conduct of the coming local government election.
Amosun stated this during his sallah message to the people on Wednesday at the Eid-el-Fitri praying ground, Oke Lantoro, Abeokuta.
He advised the people to remain calm and steadfast in their dealings with others, adding that all that had been dropped during the month of Ramadan should not be returned to.
“I want to congratulate every Muslim, and non Muslims as well. Let’s reflect on the teachings we were taught during the 30 days of fasting. Both Muslims and the Christians must remain calm and exhibit tolerance among ourselves.
“I want to admonish you all to continue to pray for this country and the leaders, all what we moved away from must completely be away from”, the governor said.
In his sermon, the Chief Imam of Egbaland, Sheik Hadi Orunsolu, called on Nigerians not to relent in prayers, saying only God is the solution to our present situation in the country.
The Islamic cleric said Nigerian leaders need our prayers so much this time, especially, now that we are facing so many economic problems.
He prayed for President Muhammadu Buhari and the governor of the state and his cabinet for successful delivery of good governance to the people.
Most of those who spoke with our correspondent called on President Buhari to fast track his policies to ameliorate the pains people are going through.
They commended the president for his anti-corruption crusade. They urged him not to feel intimidated by the persistent harassment and attack from some quarters.
Today marked the end of the 30 days fasting for Muslim faithful globally.
