    “Labour is the very essence of humanity. We are alive because we work and only the dead are incapable of working,” the minister said.

    He also congratulated the Muslims on the successful completion of the Ramadan fasting and urged them to imbibe and practice the spirit of love, peace, tolerance, self-denial, kindness and sacrifice.

    “The self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period should not end but be maintained and improved upon to be a better person and truth worshipper,” Aregbesola advised.

    The minister also assured that security challenges plaguing the country will soon be a thing of the past, noting that the government is putting necessary measures in place for Nigerians to enjoy peace.
