Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has assured that his administration will always ensure that religious bodies in the state are given equal treatment.
Abiodun disclosed that his administration would constitute the Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board in due time.

He said “COVID-19 didn’t allow us to go on pilgrimage to the holy land, so we didn’t feel compelled to constitute a board that will not have anything to do, but be rest assured that we will constitute that board, and it will be a board that we will be proud of”, Abiodun submitted”.
