Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has enjoined the Muslim faithful to make supplications to Allah to heal the wounds of the nation and shower the people with His blessings.
In his Ramadan message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Peter Okhiria, the Governor said the success of the July 14 governorship election in the state is enough proof that prayers are answered when the people pray as one.
According to him, “I urge all the Muslim faithful on the occasion of yet another Holy month of Ramadan to make supplications to Allah to forgive our sins individually and collectively and heal the wounds of our land.
“The remarkable success of the July 14 governorship election in the state is due to the prayers of the Ummah and it was enough proof that prayers are answered when the people pray as one.
“We must therefore renew our supplications to Almighty Allah to bless our collective efforts as we take bold steps to reposition our state and to grant her the peace and unity necessary for her prosperity and progress.
“I pray to Almighty Allah to grant our people the grace needed to excel in the Holy month.”
