Eid-el-Fitr: Ogun Councillorship Aspirant Easy Urges Muslims To Pray For Nigeria


A councillorship aspirant for Ward 9 in Abeokuta North Local Government of Ogun State, Comrade Lawal Olawale popularly known as "Thinkeasy"  has called on Muslims to pray for unity in Nigeria in the face of its peace being threatened.


Lawal Olawale made the call in a press statement issued to newsmen in Abeokuta on Tuesday.


While congratulating Muslim faithful on the completion of their Ramadan fast, he urged them to reflect on Prophet Mohammed’s teachings on love for one another and peaceful coexistence.


He advised them to hold on to their resilience, dedication, patience and self-sacrifice in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the threats of insecurity.


The Aspirant said that God had been gracious to Nigeria and urged both Muslims and Christians to remain steadfast in their prayers for a prosperous and united country.


“We do not have any other country to call our own, but Nigeria. Therefore, it behoves all of us, irrespective of our faith, to ensure that Nigeria is made the envy of other countries,” he said.


Olawale noted that this year’s celebration had provided an opportunity for the living to reflect on the awesomeness of God in the face of challenges.


He also solicited their continuous prayers for the government and people of the state.


Easy appealed to Muslim faithful to spare some thoughts for the vulnerable, weak and needy in their midst, urging them to show some love in the spirit of the celebration.
