The Chairman, Senate Committee on Land Transport, also urged the people not to limit their service to Almighty Allah to Ramadan.
He urged them to be more consistent and be at peace with every member of the society irrespective of their religion or political affiliation.
“As we celebrate this Eid-el-fitri, let us remember the victims of COVID-19 in our prayers and pray to Almighty Allah to heal our land of the pandemic which is ravaging the whole world.
“Nigerians should also obey the guidelines and order laid down by the government on COVID -19. Our people should always ensure social distancing, regular hand washing and avoid public gathering,” he said.
The senator reinstated his commitment to qualitative representation and development of his constituency.
In his message, Odebunmi congratulated Muslims on the completion of Ramadan 1441 A.H, expressing optimism that coronavirus would soon be a history.
Odebunmi, Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Information and National Orientation, said that it was painful that this year’s Ramadan commenced and ended during the pandemic.
“Though this is not the best moment in our nation, but we need to intensify our prayers and commitment to Almighty God to forgive our sins and heal the land,” he said.
He urged his constituents to always adhere strictly to directives of government and health experts on COVID-19, ensuring adequate hand washing, use of sanitizers and avoidance of large gatherings.
