Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has called on Muslim faithful in the state to use the Eid-el-Kabir celebration as an opportunity to rededicate themselves to service.
The governor made the call in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Segun Ajiboye on Saturday in Akure.
He said the joyous period provides the veritable tool Nigerians collectively desire for peaceful coexistence, tolerance as well as the needed communality with one another.
The governor said that the true reflection of love, compassion, hardwork, patriotism, sacrifice and selflessness epitomised by the Holy Prophet Mohammed must be the compass of for all Muslims in the state.
He urged all to imbibe the enviable virtues of the Holy Prophet adding that the ceaseless prayers and intercessions of all Muslims were increasingly becoming desirable.
The governor said the prayers were “especially for our selfless security agencies, in view of the precarious security challenges that have inadvertently been imposed on the nation”.
