Emir of Ilorin, Others Preach Peace


Emir of Ilorin and Chairman Kwara State Traditional Council, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has enjoined Muslims to continue to exemplify the worthy life of Prophet Muhammad and extend such to adherents of other religions by continuing to live in peace and harmony.

The Emir stated this yesterday in his Sallah message delivered at the Ilorin Central Yidi praying ground shortly after the two Rakats prayer which was conducted in a peaceful atmosphere.

He also admonished religion leaders to discharge their obligations in line with the dictates of Allah and his Prophet in order to inject the message of unity, peace and harmony into the society.

While felicitating with the entire Muslim Ummah for the successful completion of the spiritual, Gambari urged residents to continue to live in peace and always shun violence even as he warned miscreants to have a re-think for the sake of the brotherhood binding everyone together.

Meanwhile, the Olofa of Offa, Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi Esuoye 1, has enjoined Muslims not to jettison all the good works that they had during the just concluded Ramadan fast.

The monarch in a statement issued in Offa yesterday to mark the Eid -el-Fitr celebrations said: “Let it be our foundation upon which all our actions will rest for the next 11 months when the opportunity will once again present itself.”

He therefore urged all Muslims to continue to preach peace, unity and tolerance among themselves and people of other religions so that the nation can move forward.
