Speaker, State of Osun House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Najeem Salaam has joined and identified with Muslim faithful around the world in general and the State in particularly to express gratitude to Allah for sparing our lives to witness another holy month of Ramadan.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Goke Butika, Speaker Salaam admonished the Muslim faithful and Islamic scholars in the state to seize the advantage of this month to intercede for the nation before the Almighty Allah and pray for its health and prosperity, for we have no other nation to call our own.

“We have reached a point in our nation where only prayer and concerted effort are required to lift, for our challenges are multi-dimensional ranging from corruption, economic meltdown and man inhumanity to man”, said Salaam.

Speaker Salaam then urged Islamic leaders and preachers to prioritize peaceful coexistence, love and good citizenship coupled with the fear of God in their preachings, saying that would make humanity to come out better after the holy month of Ramadan.
