Ramadan: Ex-Osun Governor, Oyinlola Felicitates Muslim Ummah



Former Governor of Osun state, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding, Osogbo, rejoices with Muslims in Osun State, Nigeria and across the world, on the commencement of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

Oyinlola observed that the observance of fasting during Ramadan, which is one of the key pillars of Islam, comes along with the attendant spiritual rejuvenation and blessings.

According to the former governor, ” as we engage in fasting and prayers, let us remember at all times that Ramadan provides opportunity for interfaith relations, empathy and prayers for the country in at a critical time like this.”

He enjoined the Muslim Umaah to seize the opportunity of this season to do more in terms of helping the less privileged around them.

“The holy month of Ramadan should not only be about fasting, it should be a period to step up our care for the less privileged around us by helping to make the fasting period easy for them through works of charity.”

Prince Oyinlola wishes all Muslims a spiritually fulfilling fasting experience, while urging them to imbibe the spirit of Ramadan, by focusing on purity of body and mind while embracing empathy and kindness for fellow human beings.
