A statement signed by the group’s President General, Comrade AWA Bamiji, which was dedicated to the late activists, reads:
We congratulate Muslims across the World on the occasion of Ramadan fasting and we advise them to abide by the important lessons of Ramadan throughout the fasting period and after the month of fasting, which hammers on fear of Almighty Allah and peaceful coexistence.
We felicitate a great Philanthropist, National Leader of All Progressives’ Congress (APC) and the most visible 2023 Presidential Aspirant in Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his 70th Birthday Anniversary.
It’s a known fact that there’s no Nigerian today, who has contributed to democratic freedom more than you, apart from your enviable record of achievements as a former Governor of Lagos State. You are a Master Strategist and all seasons’ visionary with leadership qualities worth of emulation.
We celebrate the Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo @ 65 and the first Lady of Osun State, Alhaja Kafayat Oyetola @ 62, as well as the elder statesman and music maestro, Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi @ 80.
“From you we come, to you we shall return”, we mourn Oba Moses Oladejo Oyediran, Ajombadi III, and Ambassador Olusola Sanu; Ogunsua of Modakeke and the Chairman, Ibadan Elders’ Forum, both of whom passed on at the age of 95 and 92 respectively.
May Almighty God grant their souls eternal rest.
Today, marks exactly one year of passage of the two foremost Human Rights’ Activists, our dear friends, Comrades and Partners in Progress, Comrade Yinka Odumakin and Innocent Chukwuma, Publicity Secretary of Afenifere; and the immediate past Country and West African Director of Ford Foundation and Founder of Cleen Foundation respectively.
May their souls continue to rest in peace and God Almighty continue to be with their families, friends and associates.
