Governor AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq lost an uncle, Alhaji Uthman AbdulRazaq to the cold hands of death last week. Alhaji Uthman AbdulRazaq who died at 72 gave up the ghost after a brief illness. The governor joined other family members including Dr Alimi AbdulRazaq to attend the Janazzah prayer held for the deceased at the Ilorin Muslim Burial Ground, Ilorin on Thursday. An Islamic Cleric, Alhaji Abdulraheem Oniwasi, who delivered a short sermon reminded Muslims of the need to work hard in accordance with the dictates of Islam in order to be rewarded accordingly in the grave. He noted that the grave is no respecter of any personality on the surface of the earth except for those who keep to the commandments of God.
Oniwasi urged Muslims to always be conscious and carry out their duties to Allah to earn God’s favour on the day of judgment. Professor Hamzat Abdulraheem of the Kwara State University and Dr. Mohammed Ghali of the University of Ilorin prayed Allah to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and make Aljanah fridaus his final abode.
