Lawmaker representing Oyo North Senatorial District at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari has felicitated with Muslims on this year’s Eid el Fitri celebration.
In a congratulatory message issued by his media team, Senator Buhari prayed for lasting peace, progress and development in Oyo State and Nigeria.
The senator, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on ICT and Cybercrimes, urged Muslims not to limit their prayer and fasting to the Ramadan period alone but make it a periodic exercise as commanded by Allah and the prophet.
His words: “Let the teachings, prayers and lessons of Ramadan reflect in your day to day activities, be at peace with your neighbour and ensure you sacrifice and devote your time and wealth to serve God and make people around you happy .
“Don’t allow quest for materialism and power overwhelm your commitment to Almighty Allah but win people to God through your character, contentment and subjection to the will of Almighty Allah.
The senator however urged members of the public to give maximum support to the leaders at the helm of affairs at all levels and pray for divine guidance in their assignments.
He also used the occasion to thank his constituents again in Oyo North for their support before, during & after the last election and pledged not to betray the confidence reposed in him through his reelection.
