The Ogun State Deputy Governor, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele has charged Muslim faithful across the State to continue with the tenets of the holy Quran and sustain all the good deeds after Ramadan.
Salako-Oyedele gave the charge while addressing faithful at the Ota Muslim Community Praying Ground.
She said good deeds such as giving alms, helping the less privileged, good conduct and observing regular prayers should not end after Ramadan.
“As Ramadan ends today, we should endeavour to continue to imbibe all these good things in our lives because Islam preaches peace and love.
“During Ramadan, we do a lot of community service and look out for the less privileged to assist them but many stops doing all of these after Ramadan, so there is the need for us to continue to seek for the welfare of others so that we can have a better society,” she said.
She added that Islam is a religion of peace and enjoined the people of the State to embrace peace irrespective of religions and backgrounds in order to move the State forward.
In his sermon, the Chief Imam of Ota, Alhaji Sadeeq Buhari urged Muslim faithful to apply all the lessons of Ramadan in their day-to-day living. He also called on sons and daughters of Aworiland home and abroad to come together to contribute positively to the success of the present administration.
In her words, Iya Suna of Ota Muslim Community, Alhaja Fausat Olusesi thanked Almighty Allah for witnessing the completion of the Ramadan urging Muslims to embrace love, peace, and sustain all the good deeds of the Holy month.
