Makinde’ Deputy, Lawal Meets State Pilgrims In Mecca, Promises Govt Equity, Fairness Among Religious Groups



Oyo State Government has assured the people of the state that the present administration would continue to ensure equity and fairness among all religious groups in the state.

The State Deputy Governor, Chief Bayo Lawal gave this assurance while addressing Oyo pilgrims in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.

The Deputy Governor who is the Amirul Hajj of the state contingent, said the rights of Muslims and other religious groups would be respected.

He also assured that the welfare and safety of the pilgrims would be the major preoccupations of Government and the State Pilgrims Welfare Board.

The Oyo state Amirul-Hajj therefore announced his personal donation of an undisclosed sum of money to the pilgrims, numbering 1,446.

The Deputy Governor thereafter charged the pilgrims, who are preparing for their movement to Mina and ascension of Mount Arafat, to pray for peace and progress of the state and the nation while performing the hajj rites.

The State Pilgrims are scheduled to leave their hotels in Makkah for Mina on Sunday night in preparation for ascension of Mount Arafat and the three day symbolic stoning of Satan.

The pilgrims, alongside their counterparts from other parts of the world, are to converge on Mount Arafat on Tuesday, 27th June, 2023.
