16 Dec EID EL KABIR: “PRAYER FOR PEACEFUL 2019 ELECTION” – SENATOR ADEOLA
As Muslims the world over celebrates the Eid el Kabir tomorrow the senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District and Chairman of Senate Committee on Local Content Senator Solomon Adeola has enjoined all Muslim faithful in his senatorial district and Nigerians all over the nation to pray for peaceful and successful conduct of the 2019 General Election in our move to continue the deepening of democracy in Nigeria.
In his Eid-el- Kabir message to felicitate with adherents of the Islamic faith, Senator Adeola 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.
