The Ogun State Chairman of Riders and Owners of Motorcycles Organisation (ROMO), Comrade Sotayo Olusola Rasak, popularly known as Sholebo, has congratulated Muslim faithful on the occasion of the 2021 Eid-el Fitri celebration, urging them to put into practice the lessons acquired during the Ramadan period.
The ROMO Chairman in a statement in Abeokuta yesterday, called on all Muslims across the country to embrace peace and continue to work together with Nigerians from other regions for the unity and progress of the country.
Sholebo enjoined all Muslims to imbibe and sustain the teachings of the Ramadan period, saying “It is important for us all as Muslims to exhibit and put into continuous practice all the lessons that the holy month has taught us.
“Our fasting must not be in vain, therefore, we must continue to pray for the peace and unity of Nigeria. We must not forget that Nigeria’s peace depends on our individual effort and collective prayers.”
The ROMO Chairman expressed the optimism that Nigeria will surmount all the challenges currently confronting the country, “but if we must survive as a country, we need to come together and put aside our personal and selfish interest and work together for the greater good of the country.
“It is up to us now. We must ensure that we leave an enduring legacy for the incoming generation. The labour of our heroes past must not be in vain. Nigeria must work and it requires our collective efforts and prayers to work.”
Sholebo also appealed all Muslims to engage in moderate celebration, saying the current situation in the country calls for sober reflection.
He charged members of the union to continue to conduct themselves in peaceful manner during and after the celebration, saying “As members of the most peaceful union in the transport industry, we must continue be good role models to others by maintaining good conduct at all times.”
