In his Sallah message to the Muslim community in the council area, the Speaker enjoined them to sustain the lessons of Ramadan and replicate same in their daily lives for a better society.

He also called on the Muslim faithful not to be carried away by only the pageantry of the Sallah celebration, but to use the occasion for sober reflection and extend gestures and hands of support to the needy in the society as well as to pray for the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming September 22, gubernatorial election.

Owoade used the period to enjoin the people of the council area and the entire citizens of the state who are are yet to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to go to the INEC office nearest to them for the pick up, saying that was the only power they have to choose the candidate who would govern them for the next for years.

He, however, urged the aspirants contesting on the platform of APC to work in unison and eschew any act capable of causing crisis within the party, saying “we must all work together to sustain the good legacy of our amiable Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola”

“As you join the rest of the Ummah all over the world to celebrate this year’s Eid el-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, I enjoin you to replicate and demonstrate in your daily lives the lessons and virtues of sacrifice, forgiveness, piety, self denial and genuine love towards one another which you learnt during the month- long fast”.

“This is indeed another moment of celebration and sober reflection. And apart from reflection, I urge you to also take out opportunity, cashing on the spirituality of this festive period to offer special prayers for the successful conduct of coming governorship election and the success of our great party, APC.”

“Let me also use this period to appeal to my people in Irewole North-East and the entire people of Osun who are yet to collect their PVC to visit INEC office nearest to them for pick up as this is the only power you have to choose the governor who will rule this state for the next four years.”

“All aspirants contesting on the platform of our great party, APC should also ensure they work in unison, they should work together so as to ensure victory in the forthcoming governorship, hence allow the good work of our amiable governor to live on.”
