Governor Dapo Abiodun celebrates Eid Al-Fitr with Muslims in Ogun State
Governor Dapo Abiodun has joined Muslims in Ogun State to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The blessing is exchanged between Muslims at the end of Ramadan, when followers of the faith are no longer required to fast, and plenty of household names are partaking in the festivities.
In his congratulatory note to Muslims, Governor Abiodun enjoined households to celebrate in their homes and avoid large gatherings as the state continue the fight against coronavirus.
“My family and I celebrate with all Muslim faithful in Ogun State on the successful end of Ramadan, and we are very grateful to Almighty Allah (SWT) for guiding us all through the Holy Month, especially during this time of a raging pandemic,” the statement read.
“This is an unusual time that disallows the traditional merrymaking that comes with the glorious end of the Ramadan Fast, so I urge us all to celebrate at home without gathering in large numbers.
“I want us all, Nigerian Muslims and Christians, to be grateful to the Almighty that an increasing number of people are recovering from the virus. We should therefore continue to follow advisories on distancing, hand hygiene, face masks, lockdown, and travels.
“As we all celebrate at home, let’s for the sake of all frontline workers who have sacrificed one way or another, pray to the Almighty to bring an end to this global health crisis.
“May we all live to witness many more years of Ramadan.”
