Prof. Abiodun Ojo, the Chairman of the Governing Council and initiator of the program, emphasized the importance of Ramadan in the lives of Muslim faithfuls and non-Muslims alike. He appreciated the Muslim Community for their steadfastness since he became the Council Chairman of the Institution and encouraged the organizers to extend invitations to other communities in Ibarapa for subsequent programs.

“I greet everyone present, both Muslim brothers and sisters, management, staff, and students of this Institution. May the blessings of God be with you all. Whether you are Muslim or Christian, when facing challenges in life, two things to rely on are fasting and prayer. In the month of Ramadan, collective fasting is believed to bring about wonderful outcomes. Ramadan Lectures offer valuable teachings that are beneficial to all, not just Muslims.”

“As a Christian, I frequently attend Ramadan Lectures and have initiated them in different organizations I have served. I appeal to everyone that Ramadan Lecture is not only for Muslims; other religious bodies should find ways of attending the program regularly.”

The erudite guest Lecturer, Dr. Rosheed Hashim, delivered an enlightening discourse on “Islam and Good Governance: A Consideration of the Nigerian State.” Dr. Hashim emphasized Islam’s pivotal role in good governance, stating that any government devoid of Islamic principles, rules, and regulations cannot offer good governance. He highlighted the qualities of good governance, including competence, fear of God, truthfulness, humility, strong determination, moral uprightness, and equal distribution of resources.

Speaking on behalf of the Acting Rector of the Institution, Mr. Rafiu, Chairman of the committee of Deans, congratulated Muslim faithfuls on campus for the success of the program. “On behalf of the Acting Rector, Dr. Gbade Akinteye, I congratulate the Muslim management, staff, and students of this Institution for organizing this program.
