As Muslims in Kwara State commence the holy month of Ramadan, Senator Saliu Mustapha representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, has extended his warm greetings to the faithful, urging unity and prayers during the period in order for the country to surmount present socio-econimic challenges.

In a statement made available to journalists in Ilorin, Senator Mustapha expressed his felicitations to Kwara Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq; the Amir-l-Muminin, HRH Dr. Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, CFR, the Emir of Ilorin; and all political, community and religious stakeholders across Kwara State.

“As we embark on this sacred journey of fasting and prayer, let us also strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and community within our state,” said Senator Mustapha.

Highlighting the importance of Ramadan, Senator Mustapha stated, “Ramadan is more than just a period of fasting; it’s a time deeply rooted in our cultural practices, fostering a powerful sense of unity within our community.”

He emphasized the significance of Iftar, the evening meal to break the fast, as a moment that brings people together, reinforcing the shared traditions and values.

The senator applauded Ilorin Emirate for its exemplary demonstration of Ramadan’s essence through communal prayers, shared meals, and acts of charity.

“Our heritage-rich state, Kwara, exemplifies this beautifully during Ramadan. From communal prayers to shared meals and acts of charity, these expressions of kindness and unity are the essence of this holy month,” he remarked.

With a call to prayer for leaders, Senator Mustapha implored, “Let us use this opportunity to offer fervent prayers for our leaders throughout the nation and for our beloved state. May Allah grant them the wisdom and guidance to navigate the challenges we face.”
