The former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has urged Muslim faithful to pray for the development of the country during the ongoing Ramadan.

Oyinlola, who is he Chairman of Board of Trustees of the Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding, Osogbo in Osun State, said this in a statement to felicitate Muslims in the state, Nigeria, and across the world on the commencement of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

The former governor stated that the observance of fasting during Ramadan, which he said is one of the key pillars of Islam, comes along with the attendant spiritual rejuvenation and blessings.

“As we engage in fasting and prayers, let us remember at all times that Ramadan provides opportunity for interfaith relations, empathy and prayers for the country in at a critical time like this,” he said.

He enjoined the Muslim faithful to seize the opportunity of the Ramadan to do more in terms of helping the less privileged around them.

“The holy month of Ramadan should not only be about fasting, it should be a period to step up our care for the less privileged around us by helping to make the fasting period easy for them through works of charity,” the PDP chieftain added.

Prince Oyinlola further wished all Muslims “a spiritually fulfilling fasting experience” and urged them to imbibe the spirit of Ramadan, by focusing on purity of body and mind while embracing empathy and kindness for fellow human beings.
