During the annual ‘Iftar With Mr Governor,’ in Akure, the state capital, where he broke fast with Muslims in the state, Akeredolu of Ondo State called for fervent prayers against the challenges of insecurity bedeviling Nigeria.

“The challenges of insecurity in the country are being exacerbated at a time the country is looking forward to having hitch-free year 2023 general elections,” the governor said.

While noting that he is a believer in the power of prayers, Akeredolu said Nigeria will overcome “these challenges in no distant time with fervent prayers to the Almighty Allah.”

“The Ramadan period involves purification through fasting, abstinence as well as an opportunity to seek forgiveness and blessings from Almighty Allah.

“It is undoubtedly a time to put at bay self-seeking attitude with a view to attaining spiritual growth through display of acts of kindness and generosity.

“The lessons learnt during this month of Ramadan should, therefore, be internalised by every faithful and also extended to non-Muslims across the State,” he said.
