Akinosi felicitates Muslims as Ramadan fast starts
Nigeria - The House of Representatives-elect for Ado-Odo-Ota Federal Constituency of Ogun State, Hon. (Engr) Tunji Akinosi FNSE Wednesday, 22nd March, 2023 sent his greetings and best wishes to Muslims in his constituency and Ogun State as they commenced the 30-day Ramadan fast.
In his message on the beginning of the Ramadan made available to journalists, the Engr. Akinosi said fasting was not just meant to stay hungry or thirsty, but an opportunity to strive for inner purification and self-accountability.
"It is meant to inculcate righteousness and discipline", he said.
The former Commissioner in Ogun State enjoined fasting Muslims to increase their love for humanity, acts of charity, kindness, generosity, and gratitude.
While saying the Holy Prophet Muhammad used to spend generously on the poor and the needy during this period, Akinosi urged Muslims to copy the good example.
He called on Muslims to always remember men and women who are less fortunate than themselves and to help the government in confronting the challenges facing the nation.
Akinosi prayed Allah to grant all Muslims the strength to successfully complete the fasting period.
