Council chiefs, cleric seek peace
The Chairman, Ojodu Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State, Hon. Olumuyiwa Oloro; his Oto-Awori counterpart, Hon. Bolaji Robert and popular Islamic cleric, Alhaji Muyideen Bello, have urged more prayers for the country.
Oloro, who made the call yesterday, said the various troubled besetting the nation call for fervent prayer during the ongoing Ramadan. He added that he had just given some donations to over 300 Muslim faithful in his domain in support of their fasting.
Robert and Bello spoke at the sixth Annual Bibiire Ramadan lecture and special prayer held at Ijankin, a Lagos suburb. “Today‘s lecture is timely due to the incessant security challenges in the country. We should learn how to dwell peacefully with one another. We should be tolerant of one another’s belief and be a worthy example of responsible citizenry,” Robert said
On security, he said the council had stepped up arrangement to protect lives and property, adding that strategic measures were being taken to forestall breakdown of law and order in Oto- Awori LCDA.
In his lecture, Bello warned politicians against making statement that could cause mayhem in the society.
“As Muslims, this is the period to devote ourselves to Allah to cleanse the land of the terrorist activities of Boko Haram and other forms of violence perpetrated in the country. We should abstain from sin and worship our creator with our hearts,” he said.
