0 84

THE Alamodu of Aghor Amodu, Oba Johnson Olaoye, has called on Nigerians, especially Muslims, to use the opportunity provided by the holy month of Ramadan to beseech God to put a stop to the coronavirus pandemic and other diseases ravaging the country.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)


Oba Olaoye, who made the call while addressing the people of Ago Amodu, stated that the COVID-19 pandemic was too much for medical personnel alone to handle.

According to him, the situation has made it imperative for all Nigerians to seek the face of God for intervention.

He, therefore, urged all residents of Oyo State to accept and put into practice all laws put in place by the government.

The traditional ruler praised Governor Seyi Makinde for taking “very strong steps” to contain the spread of the virus such as the curfew and social distancing which had resulted in closing down of places of worship.

He called on the people to be patient, noting that everything would normalise very soon.
