He expressed his congratulations to all Muslims on the successful conclusion of the fasting month of Ramadan.

Ogbeni Aregbesola called on all Muslims to imbibe and practise the virtues of kindness, love, tolerance, peace, self-denial, sacrifice and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

“The self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon, in order to be a better person and true worshipper,” the minister advised all Muslims.

Aregbesola said that following successful elections, President Muhammadu Buhari was completely committed to a peaceful transfer of power. He reaffirmed the government’s commitment to providing security for every citizen and foreign visitor to the nation’s property.

The minister applauded the security services for their achievements in the nationwide fight against crime.

Insisting that security is everyone’s duty, he asked Nigerians to contribute to the country’s security framework by being watchful and alerting local law enforcement agencies to any suspicious people or actions. He urged Nigerians to use the N-Alert app to report suspicious people and activities.

Aregbesola greeted all Muslims a joyous Eid il-Fitr celebration and said, “May Allah grant you all peace, blessings, and favor.” Ameen.”
