While felicitating the Muslims on the celebration of Eid-al-Fitr, Okunomo who is popularly known as BBO also asked the Muslims to be thankful to God for the grace to witness and celebrate another Sallah amid COVID-19 in Nigeria.
” I felicitate the Muslims in Ondo State on the celebration of Eid-al-Fitr. I appeal to them to keep hope alive because this difficult time shall soon pass away.”
”God has heard their cries. We are aware of their sufferings and marginalisation but there is a terminal date already for such. It won’t last long as we prepare for the gubernatorial election in Ondo State.”
”Above all, they should be thankful to God for the grace to witness and celebrate another Sallah amid COVID-19 in Nigeria,” Okunomo said.
