The foremost traditional ruler enjoined everyone to celebrate the moment in gratitude for the gift of life despite the challenges currently facing the country.

"Seasons like this, with contrite hearts, set our minds to find consolation in virtue of faithfulness and expression of belief in triumph over evils as we pray for the peace in our nation.

"May this season inspire you to embrace new hope, and may you find comfort, joy, and prevailing grace during this season with a strong reminder that the lingering challenges upon our nation shall pass, and Nigeria will emerge stronger with prosperity, peace, justice, and equity.

"From the Royal Court of the Kingdom of Ife, I bring you all season's greetings.", Ooni added.
