Written by on May 4, 2022
The wife of the Lagos State Governor, Mrs Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, has urged parents and guardians to pay closer attention to their children and wards.
She gave the advice on Tuesday during the year 2022 Eid-El-Fitr Celebration in Ikeja, organised by the First Family and the Lagos State Government to commemorate the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The governor’s wife said that parents should be the friends of their children, so as to attend to all that concerned them.
”As we bask in the euphoria of this sacred celebration, it is also important to seize the opportunity of this spiritual exercise to admonish our children and youths to shun all ungodly, immoral, and bestial acts’’ she said.
She charged Muslim faithful that beyond Ramadan, they should imbibe and sustain the principles of the holy month, which amongst others included peace, kindness, compassion and happy co-existence.
According to her, Prophet Mohammed held these principles in high esteem and lived His whole life around them.
Mrs Sanwo-Olu said that it was also important to allow all these virtues to reflect in one’s actions, public conduct and interpersonal relations with everyone, long after Ramadan.
