Ramadan: Fayose Distributes 14,500 Branded 5kg Rice To Muslims, Urges Religious Tolerance

Ekiti state Governor-elect, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has distributed about 14,500 branded 5kg rice to Muslim faithful across the 16 councils of the state.

Distributing some packs of the rice at the Central Mosque yesterday, Fayose, who spoke through his deputy, Dr. Olusola Eleka, said “the gesture was in the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan”.

Eleka said: “You know the Governor-elect is a man of the people and he sees and seizes opportunities such as this to make a statement regarding his undying love for the people. He is doing this to identify with them as he has always done.”

Urging Muslims to use the opportunity of the month to pray for the country and Ekiti State, the deputy governor-elect expressed gratitude to the people for their massive vote for the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) candidate, Fayose, assuring “the incoming administration would deliver on the promises made during electioneering campaign”.

Noting that the peaceful atmosphere in the state was a result of the prayers and spiritual efforts of both Muslims and Christians, Eleka said, “the governor-elect appreciates your prayers for him, this state and the country at large and I urge you not to relent especially now that a new government is on the way”.
