Kwara state Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Friday congratulated the Muslim community on the dawn of another Ramadan, the ninth Islamic month in which fasting is prescribed for healthy Muslims.
“I felicitate with the Muslim ummah on the coming of another Ramadan, a month in which God’s mercies are exceptionally abundant and His forgiveness far-reaching. I wish the Muslim ummah a very rewarding fasting season.
“I fully appreciate the fact that this is a peculiar moment for all of humanity during which movement is restrained to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the interest of everyone.
“I call for the understanding of all at this time, especially the Muslim community whose special acts of worship during Ramadan are affected by the restriction on movement and public gatherings.
“I am consoled however, by the fact that history is replete with examples of the best of the Muslim generation,” he added.
