The Chief Imam of Aliwo Central Mosque,  Ibadan, Alhaji Moshood Giwa, has urged Muslims to always prepare for death by doing goods, saying death is inevitable.

Giwa stated this on Friday in Ibadan during the eight-day fidau prayer organised by Aliwo Progressive Movement for late Chief Tunde Braimoh, the lawmaker representing Kosofe Constituency 2 in Lagos State House of Assembly.

The Chief Imam said that the only way to benefit from Allah on earth and the hereafter was to exhibit good deeds and adhere to the tenents of Islam.

Similarly, the Chief Imam of  Bodija and Environs Muslim Community Mosque, Alhaji Abdulhakeem Afuye, said though the deceased served in Lagos, his impacts were also felt in his roots.

He said these impacts earned him the title of “Akogun Baameto of Ibadanland.”

Afuye urged politicians, stakeholders and leaders generally to always remember the masses and ensure that their people felt their impact in governance.

He said this was the only way they would remain indelible in the annals of history after death.

The first son of the late lawmaker, Abdullateef, said his father’s death came as a rude shock.

He, however, said the deceased was fulfilled with the fact that he was a man of the people.

The younger Braimoh promised to emulate his father’s good deeds.

Earlier, the President of Aliwo Progressive Movement, Alhaji Sadiq Bello, said Braimoh, who hailed from the area, would be greatly missed for his tremendous contribution in terms of socioeconomic and educational development.

It would be recalled that Braimoh died on July 10 in Lagos and was buried the same day at Ikoyi Cemetery according to Islamic rites.
