EID EL KABIR: Yayi Urges Nigerians To Pray For Peaceful 2019 Elections
London, August 20, 2018 (Altfrica)-The Chairman, Nigeria Senate Committee on Local Content, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola has urged Muslims faithfuls in his Lagos West Senatorial district and Nigerians as a whole to pray for peaceful and successful conduct of the 2019 General Elections.
Adeola, who stated this in his Eid-el- Kabir message issued by his Media Adviser, Chief Kayode Odunaro to felicitate with adherents of the Islamic faith, said a strict adherence to the teachings of Islam in the areas of love, brotherliness, piousness, peaceful coexistence as well as tolerance will
greatly assist in peaceful conduct of the coming elections adding that all Nigerians should embrace the ethos of making votes count and electing credible leader with integrity for national development.
“As we approach another election season let us all shun the debilitating approach of seeing politics as a “do or die affair” but rather let us see it as the quest for service for the development of the society with electoral outcomes taken in the spirit of sportsmanship”, he stated.
The senator said he will continue to represent his constituents by ensuring that they continue to enjoy dividends of democracy from the government as well as from his programmes in the area of education, provision of social amenities like boreholes and transformers among others constituency empowerment programmes all aimed at complementing efforts of government at all levels.
He urged Muslims to shun social vices as contained in the Koran as such are not only detrimental to the individuals well- being on the long run but harm the fabric
of society in various ways that may not be immediately seen.
