The guests said that Lawal’s method of sharing his resources with people would undoubtedly result in a sizable reward from Allah for his generosity, humility, open door policy, and principle of identifying with different strata of people in the society regardless of his or her status.

They prayed Allah (SWT) would continue to bless him and his family as well as his principal, Governor Seyi Makinde, and Oyo State, saying that his charitable act is full of rewards, especially during Laylatul-Qudri.

He described the holy month of Ramadan as a time of purification, sacrifice, and introspection.

Lawal prayed for his principal, Governor Seyi Makinde, and asked Allah to accept everyone’s fasting as an act of Iba’dah.
