Speaker Adekunbi Urges Muslim Faithful, Others To Keep Praying For Peace In Ogun

Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraju Adekunbi, on Friday advised  citizens not to relent in their prayers for the continuous peace and progress of the State and the nation at large.

Adekunbi said the current progress, especially in the areas of infrastructure and the prevailing peaceful atmosphere across the State, is the result of people’s support and prayers for the government.

The Speaker gave the advice  during the 20th edition of the Annual Ramadan Lecture of the Muslim Community, State Hospital, Ijaye, Abeokuta.

Adekunbi who was represented by his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Mr. Abdul-Gafar Babalola, also called on  well-meaning individuals to assist the less-privileged members of the society.

 Speaking on the topic: ‘’Marriage in Islam: the Good and the Bad Ways of Doing It’,’ the guest lecturer, Chief Imam of Ilaro Central Mosque, Alhaji Tajudeen Adewunmi, said marriage was a serious business and task full,  which must be taken seriously.

 ‘’A man must have a job before thinking of marriage and must not marry a woman that is not religious and possesses good moral.

 ‘’As for a woman who want to marry, she must not marry a man because of his wealth, she must look for a religious man with high moral and high level of patient,’’ he advised.

Also, a member- elect of the Assembly, representing Abeokuta State Constituency 1, Yusuf Adejojo, described the holy month of Ramadan as a special month that Almighty Allah forgives sins and answers prayers.
