Lagos Assembly speaker preaches compassion at Ramadan

Speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Dr. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, has urged Muslims, in particular and Nigerians in general, to be more compassionate to the less privileged and to imbibe the act of selfless service to humanity during the holy month of Ramadan.

Obasa, in his Ramadan message, said, “Ramadan is not only about abstinence from sins, food, alcoholic beverages and other pleasures of life, but also about love and compassion for others particularly the less privileged.

“There is no better time than now to be more compassionate with the less privileged ones who are most affected by lockdown in the country caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.”

He also implored  the Muslim faithful to use the occasion of the Ramadan to pray to the Almighty Allah heal the land of all diseases causing untimely death.

The speaker prayed the Almighty Allah to “preserve our lives beyond the Ramadan and grant us His blessings.”
