Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has urged Nigerians to be tolerant, restore peace, and bring back the humanity they are known for.
Sanwo-Olu said this at the 2022 Annual Ramadan Lecture/Prayer held at the State House Mosque on Saturday at Alausa, Ikeja.
The governor who was represented by his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, said, “If there was peace, then the people could coexist and live as one.”
He pleaded with all the Muslim faithful to pray for peace in the country, and “that the spirit of Shai’tan, devil, does not take over the land.”
“I pray that Almighty Allah takes control of our country and brings peace and happiness, for, without it, nothing can be achieved,” he said.
The governor stated that Ramadan was a period to be charitable and do good at all times.
He explained that the only way to sustain development was through peaceful coexistence and averting insecurity.
Speaking earlier, the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, called on Nigerians especially the Muslim faithful, to avail themselves of the training and serenity that Ramadan afforded, to cleanse their hearts and enrich their souls with virtues.
