The party urged Muslim faithful to use the advantage of the spirituality of this period to offer special prayers for the whole World to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 Pandemic.

“Muslims and believers of other religions  should redouble their praying efforts and use the advantage of the celebration to offer special prayers to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic for the World to get over it.

“As we all know that this is a period of sober reflection, renewal of faith and expression of thanksgiving to the Almighty Allah for a successful completion of the holy month of Ramadan, special privileged citizens in the society should endeavor to extend their kind gestures to the needy and less privileged people in the society,” the statement admonished.

The party also called on the people of the State  to continue to support and join hands with the Gboyega Oyetola-led government, for everyone to have reason to be happy by seeing progressive developmental projects in all nooks and crannies of Osun.

Osun APC therefore, prayed that Allah will accept all Ibadah observed by Muslims during and after Ramadan fasting, and wished them a happy Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
