A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general election, Dr. Olusola Ayandele popularly known as Eruobodo, has extended his warm greetings to the Oyo State Muslims as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The APC chieftain, in a press statement in Ibadan on Sunday, expressed hope that the observance of this Holy festival would foster deeper understanding among the people of Oyo State regardless of faith or religious belief.
“Let us all reflect on the virtues of humility, patience and generosity that Eid-el-Fitr signifies. To our Muslim brothers and sisters, I wish you a joyous and meaningful celebration,” he said.
Ayandele said that 2020 Eid-el-Fitr celebration was coming at a time when the world was battling with Covid-19 pandemic and thanked Muslims for their sacrifices and prayers for the nation and their decision to celebrate in their homes because of the prevailing pandemic.
He urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari with prayers and adhere strictly to the government’s and health experts’ instructions on how to stay safe and curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus.
