Lawal, who is the Director, Public Affairs Unit, Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, stated that NUJ annual Ramadan Lecture of the Chapel has gained prominence because of its focus on issues of national importance, the quality and diversity of the speakers and the general organization of the programme. 

While appreciating the Chairman of the chapel, Comrade Debo Adeniji and his executive committee for finding members of the 2023 Ramadan committee worthy of the assignment, Lawal urged members of the chapel as well as the general public to find time to attend the lecture, assuring that they would benefit immensely for doing so.
