Shun Political Distraction, Focus Attention On Infrastructural Development -Clerics Tells Gov. Abdulrazaq

Islamic spiritual leaders has urged kwara state Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to shun distractions from politicians and focus attention on infrastructural development.

This is just as they condemned some miscreants who attempted to disrupt the Eid prayer on sallah day for political reasons.

The clerics including the Chief Imam of Ilorin, Sheikh Mohammed Bashir Salihu and the proprietor of Markaz Islamic Training Centre, Lagos, Sheik Habeebullah Adam Al- Ilory, spoke at one year remembrance prayer organised for the late father of Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq at Surulere, Ilorin.

The clerics asked those concerned to seek for the forgiveness of God, insisting that their actions negate the teaching of the holy Qur’an and as well as disrespect for the office of the Emir of Ilorin and that of the Chief Imam of Ilorin.
Sheikh Al- Ilory extolled the virtues of the late first lawyer of northern extraction, Alh AGF AbdulRazaq, described the deceased as a foremost figure in the development of Ilorin Emirate and Kwara State.

“AGF was a pioneer in law ,a politician of repute, and educationist. He was passionate about the progress and development of his town (Ilorin); he established the first private secondary school in Ilorin ( the then Ilorin College, now Government High School, Ilorin). For these and many enduring legacies left behind by Alh AGF AbdulRazaq he lives on,” Al- Ilory declared.

While urging the children of the late AGF to sustain the legacies of their father, Al- Ilory praised Governor AbdulRazaq for being a man of peace, making fiscal discipline, transparency and accountability the hallmark of his administration.

He also advised the governor to sustain the peaceful atmosphere his administration is promoting since it came to power.

For his part, the Chief Imam of Ilorin, Alh Mohammed Bashir Salihu who led the prayer said the deceased would for long be remembered for his developmental strides and exemplary conduct while on this planet.

The clerics also used the opportunity to pray for the restoration of peace to the length and breadth of Nigeria.

Both Al- Ilory and Salihu appealed to all Nigerians to embrace peace and resolve all contentious issues amicably.
