As the Muslims Ummah the world over commences the 2021 Ramadan fasting, the Chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists, Ogun State Council, Comrade Soji Amosu, on behalf of the Union, felicitates Muslims across Ogun State and especially the Muslim members observing the fasting in the sacred month.
Our prayer is that Allah who has granted us the opportunity to witness the beginning of the Holy Month will grant us the strength, Eeman and Taqwa to see the end of the Ramadan and to maximise the potentials therein.
In a release signed by the Secretary of the council, Ayokunle Ewuoso, the Council charges the Muslims to make the best use of the holy Month and be thankful to Almighty Allah for preserving their lives to witness another Ramadan on Earth.
It will be recalled that the outbreak of the global pandemic of Corona virus marred all activities including activities of the the last year Ramadan and it is the hope of the Union that the Muslims maximise the potentials therein and pray for the complete defeat of the pandemic especially now that the third wave of the virus is being witnessed in some European countries.
While praying that Allāh granted all their prayers, supplications and requests, the Chairman also urged members to pray for complete return of peace to the Union, to Ogun State, Nigeria as a whole and individual homes.
