She enjoined the faithfuls to sustain the good deeds exhibited during the Holy Month.
According to her, Ramadan has come to reform the faithfuls and taught them how to live a selfless and Godly life.
“The lessons learnt during the 29 days of fasting shouldn’t be eroded on the altar of celebration. We should be moderate in our celebration and continue to extend love to others. Our kindness to one another and service to humanity should extend beyond the month of Ramadan. Let’s sustain those virtues of self-purification, sacrifice, self-discipline, and being compassionate to fellow Nigerians. We should do away with all sinful acts that were discarded during Ramadan. Above all, “our priority as a people should include praying for our nation to overcome its economic and security challenges”, she said.
She hailed the women folks for their difficult sacrifice of preparing meals for the family and generally taking care of the home front during the Ramadan, saying their sacrifices is appreciated and will surely be rewarded by the almighty Allah.
Adebule called on youths to shun negative acts, channel their energies to positive things and join hands with the incoming administration to develop the country.
The former Lagos State Deputy Governor urged Nigerians to pray for the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and all those that would work with him for a successful tenure that will usher in renewed hope for our nation.
