Pray for pilgrims’ safe return —Ajimobi

THE governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has urged the country’s Muslim community to imbibe the spirit of togetherness, peaceful co-existence and love towards one another as exemplified by Holy Prophet Muhammed.

He also called for fervent prayers for pilgrims to the Holy Land, as they proceeded to Mount Arafat for prayers on Sunday, to have a hitch-free session and return to their respective countries in good health.

In his congratulatory message to the Islamic adherents on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival, the governor said that only in an atmosphere of peace and love could the people thrive and attain their potential.

A statement by the governor’s Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr Yomi Layinka, added that the country needed these attributes to achieve the desired greatness.
