A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in the Ondo State October election, Chief Olayide Adelami, has urged Muslims to pray against COVID-19 and an “end to maladministration” in the state.
He also lauded the cordial relationship, deep show of love and tolerance among Christian and Muslim faithful in the state.
Adelami, a former Deputy Clerk to the National Assembly, in his Eid-el-Fitri message to Islamic faithful on Sunday, urged Muslims to imbibe the lessons of love, sacrifice and tolerance taught by Ramadan.
He said the observance of piety, self-denial, discipline, and love during the Ramadan showed Nigerians could remain a united and peaceful nation irrespective of all daunting challenges.
“I must also not fail to use this festive season to urge leaders of faith in our nation to show more commitment to peaceful co-existence and tolerance. We have always lived as one irrespective of our faith and I want to further urge us not to allow negative developments elsewhere to distort our values such as love, peace and tolerance,” he said.
Adelami reminded Muslims that prayers were needed to defeat the raging COVID-19 pandemic that had disrupted normal life.
“As we celebrate, let us remember to stick to COVID-19 preventive measures while praying that Allah (SWT) helps us to defeat the virus soon.”
The APC chieftain also used the celebration to reiterate his resolve “to salvage the state from the present maladministration through exemplary leadership in driving governance that will truly be for the people.”
He added, “The people of Ondo State shall enjoy the dividends of good governance when I assume the mantle of leadership next year.”
