Foremost Islamic cleric, Sheikh Muhydeen Ajani Bello has said that nothing has changed in Oyo State since Late Senator Abiola Ajimobi left office as the Governor of Oyo State.
The Cleric said this on Wednesday when he delivered the first Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi memorial Ramadan lecture which took place at the Abiola Ajimobi Islamic Centre, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.
While speaking at the event, Sheik Muhydeen said that the late politician had lived a fulfilled life and had governed Oyo State to the best of his ability noting that Ajimobi completed his days in office at the right time with good achievements and that “nothing has changed since he left office.”
He said, “Nothing goes without reward from Almighty Allah”.
Bello identified four set of individuals that Allah won’t accept their fast.
“There are four people Allah won’t accept their fast. The first person is someone who drinks alcohol; a drinker should not fast because Allah won’t accept it and such person won’t enter Aljannah.
“Secondly, those that cut family ties should not bother to fast because Allah won’t accept. The third set of people are those who offend both their parents. If such person fasts, he or she is only wasting energy and time. This is why a child must not offend his father through his mother.
“Anyone who keeps malice should also not fast because it won’t be accepted. Some people will keep malice till their breath their last.”
Meanwhile, the chairman of the occasion, the Asiwaju Adini of Oyo State, Alhaji Mutiu Oladejo, stated during his welcome address that Ajimobi left a vacuum behind when he left office.
He also stated that Muslims must always prepare for death.
“He has legacies in all areas of human endeavours. We should all remember to prepare for our death. The vacuum left behind as a result of the death of the former Governor has not been filled.
“Let us join hands with our leaders to move the state forward. I urge all youths to join hands with our leaders to move the state forward,” Alhaji Oladejo was quoted as saying.
The event was attended by several dignitaries including APC gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 general elections, Mr. Adebayo Adelabu, Chief Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), House of Reps member, Tolulope Sadipe, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari (Oyo North), The late Abiola Ajimobi’s younger brother, Mr. Wasiu Ajimobi, and his children among others.
