Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has felicitated with the Muslim faithful as they celebrate this year’s Eid el-Fitr.

Governor Sanwo-Olu in his Eid el-Fitr message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, prayed for the state and its residents and the Muslim Ummah, wishing them more Ramadan festivities in good health and prosperity.

The message read in part, “Today, I join millions of people around the world, to wish our Muslim brothers and sisters in Lagos state and Nigeria happy Eid el-Fitr. Today’s celebration is unique for Muslims. It is a feast to mark the end of a month-long spiritual renewal after 29 days of fasting, prayers, and other religious acts.

“The Holy month of Ramadan is very significant to Muslims across the world as one of the major pillars of Islam, which teaches abstinence from worldly pleasures, steadfastness in prayers and total submission to the will of Allah, according to the Qur’anic injunctions.

“I want to admonish all of us that we shouldn’t allow all the prayers and fasting during the Holy month to go to waste. Please, let us all continue to live in that state of grace. Let us continue to imbibe and show that something important has passed through us and let it reflect in our words, our lives and our relationship with fellow human beings.

“We should not limit the goodness of our deeds to the Ramadan period alone, we must take the lessons and act our ways of life.”
