A statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, he urges Islamic faithful to pray relentlessly during the fasting period and specifically ask the Almighty Allah to show mercy on the people.
Governor Makinde said Muslims must embrace the piety demanded of them during the Ramadan and ask Allah to put an end to Covid-19, which is ravaging the whole world.
He also enjoined Muslims in the state to use the month-long fasting period to pray for the peace of the state and the country at large.
The statement reminds Muslim across the state not to gather for Tafsir, Iftar and Tarawih prayers during the Ramadan, due to the restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
