“I want to sincerely congratulate you on this holy month of Ramadan, a month of atonement and deep reflection. I want to implore you to imbibe the spirit of Ramadan beyond this 29 or 30 days. And I believe Allah will answer all our prayers during and after the fasting,” he prayed.
Babayemi later distributed consumable items to his hosts with words of assurance that they would regularly be empowered by his foundation to live more meaningful life and also contribute to the growth of their immediate environment.
Starting from Ede, Ejigbo and Egbedore Federal Constituency, Babayemi was received by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), including the traditional rulers, who expressed their delight in the past empowerment scheme by his foundation.
