Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Tuesday urged intending Pilgrims from the state to Saudi Arabia for the 2019 Hajj to represent the state very well during their stay in the holy land.

The governor gave the advice at the farewell prayer session organized for the intending Pilgrims held at the Muslim Welfare Board, Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital.

Governor Akeredolu, who said Pilgrims from the state had always represented the state and the country well, advised them to face their religious duties squarely.

He said: “You are our ambassadors from the state. You are going there to represent us. Represent us very well.

“Nobody is known by town, you are known by your state. Pilgrims from Ondo State have always done well. I am advising you to keep it up.”

The governor also charged the intending Pilgrims to find time to pray for the state.
