OONI CELEBRATES MUSLIMS ON EID EL KABIR, EMPHASIZES PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE

The Arole Oduduwa & Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, has congratulated Muslims across the world, especially descendants of Oduduwa over the ongoing Eid-ul-Adha celebration also known as Ileya.

According to a statement signed by his Director of Media & Public Affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare and obtained by Ife City Blog, Ooni Ogunwusi noted that lessons associated with the season must not be forgotten.

I celebrate with my Muslim faithful across the nation on this special Eid day as today marks a fulfilment of the holy injunction of gathering together to celebrate the spirit of sharing, joy and jubilation.

As you all fulfil the tenets of Eid Mubarak through sacrifice, I admonish you to immensely uphold in gratitude the values of showing love to one another, representing the spirit of peace and selfless compassion towards your neighbours. 

May the blessings of complete obedience to Allah enfold you, your household and our nation, Nigeria.

Going further, Ooni Ogunwusi, the Co-chairman, National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria(NCTRN) urged Muslims to continue to be tolerant of their neighbours who are faithfuls of other religions.

"We descendants of Oduduwa are known for peace and I want our people to sustain this. Records of security itches in some part Nigeria at large is often aggravated by broken relationship and unresolved issues which should be looked into.

"Let us be our brothers' keepers like our founding fathers were, we are socially related no matter where we come from and I want us all to share love even beyond we share our ram meat to our neighbours.

"On this note, I wish to congratulate all Muslims once again and I wish you all a happy celebration.

A ku Odun. Eid El Kabir! Ooni Ogunwusi noted.
