The Chief Executive Officer of Jagaban Communications, Mr. Samuel Adenitan, has emphasised on the need for soul searching and re-appreciation of one another during the holy month of Ramadan.
He said this at the maiden edition of Jagaban TV Ramadan Lecture was held, weekend, at the car divison hall, beside the “Iso Part” Central Mosque, Agodi Gate, Ibadan.
Adenitan said the event which was organised in collaboration with Motor Parts Dealer Association is to remind Muslim faithful on the need to live a significant life.
He said: “I am charging the world that Ramadan is a season of soul-searching and re-appreciation of ourselves with a view to understanding that if we have not made grievous mistakes from which we begin to reshape our existence, then we are far from beginning the journey of progress.”
“A lot of times we use people’s predicaments to judge them and even paint them black without making conscious effort to dig a notch deeper into their lives.”
He also emphasised on the need for unity in the country and support for the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, urging that as a nation, Nigerians must put behind their differences and forge ahead on a common front.
“In building a virile Nigeria for us and for our children, the incoming President Bola Tinubu needs all the support he can get from across all the divides.”
“I think it is only right we give him the benefit of doubt and look at the bigger picture of the robust developmental plan he championed in Lagos in the hope that he will replicate the same at the national level.”
While speaking on the topic, tagged: “A Life Of Significance”, Ibadan-based cleric, Fadilat Sheikh Suileman Adebayo Olore stated that if one will live a life worthy of significance, one must keep hold of the teachings of the Holy Prophet and utilize the importance of prayers.”
