The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Muslims for the successful month-long fasting and devotion to the will of Allah which ended Sunday, 27th July, 2014.
Speaking through a statement by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi, Osun APC stated that, “the period which has elevated the spiritual consciousness of Muslims will lead them to take the right decisions on matters which affect their faith and their lives in an environment that is constantly threatened by thugs, rapists, assassins and mischievous politicians.
“At least, those who have been faithful in their devotion during this Ramadan will come with clear conscience to sort out the evil from the good when they take a critical decision on August 9 whether or not criminals should CAPTURE power in Osun, or Allah’s grace that rained on the State since Nov. 2010 should continue”.
According to Oyatomi, “the Ramadan period came just in good time to assist not only Muslims but every adherent of faiths in Osun to consciously resist evil which desperate politicians that have gone mad for power pose to the progress already made since 2010.
Citizens of Osun, whether Muslims, Christians or traditional religionists, have a duty to stand up to evil as a united people, and to use the very high ideals of their faiths to prevent the goodness of Allah, the Almighty God, and Eledumare from being destroyed on August 9, by the combined forces of evil characters in our country and state that are already amassing in Osun, preparatory to August 9.
“Ramadan, in the collective spirit of goodness, has prepared all citizens of Osun that the big decision before them is whether or not they will bow their heads to terror and allow criminals, who our people call ‘Ojelus’ to come to power and destroy our ethos, pillage our collective patrimony and ruin the future of our children that has since November 2010 been meticulously charted by the Aregbesola administration.
“With our faiths intact, our conscience renewed, and our resolve strengthened through fasting and prayer by all religions, the citizenry of Osun will proceed together, with God on their side, to effect the victory of good over evil”.
