EID-IL-FITR: FUO VC URGES NIGERIANS TO ESCHEW VIOLENCE, CULTIVATE SENSE OF COLLECTIVE SECURITY

The Vice Chancellor of Fountain University, Osogbo, Prof. Amidu Sanni has urged Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to eschew violence and cultivate sense of collective security in the country.

Prof. Sanni in a statement made available to newsmen to mark the end of 30 days Ramadan fast said the country can only witness development, where peace, brotherliness and unity reign.

He congratulated all staff and students of Fountain University, Osogbo and the entire Muslims for the successful completion of the 1442 AH (2021) Ramadan, while praying that all the supplications during the holy month shall be accepted by Almighty Allah as acts of Ibadah.

Prof. Sanni enjoined all Muslims and by extension Nigerians to imbibe the lessons of Ramadan, which he said is one of the ways the insecurity, wanton destructions and mindless killings prevalent in the country can abate.

“I wish to rejoice with all Muslims for the peaceful and successful completion of the Ramadan fast, compared to last year, when the whole country was battling to survive the first wave of COVID-19 pandemic.”

“However, I want to urge all Muslims and Nigerians never to discard all the lessons from the the essence of Ramadan. We can only move forward in the country, if we are just, fair and show love to one another,” he said.

While appreciating members of the NASFAT family and others who financed the Ramadan Iftar and Sahur for the entire students population, he beseeched Allah to reward them here and in the Hereafter as they also spare no efforts in uplifting the University.

He further advised President Muhammadu Buhari to beef up security in the nation as recent development in the Presidency heightened the anxiety over the deteriorating level of security for which all must be taken on board for a lasting solution.
