The Olowa of Igbara-Oke kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Oba (Dr.) Francis Adefarakanmi Agbede, Ilufemiloye, (Ogidi III) has congratulated Muslims in Ondo State, Nigeria and all over the world on the joyous occasion of Eid-el-Fitr celebrations. In a message of felicitations, the monarch expressed hope that this auspicious occasion would be the harbinger of peace, progress, happiness and would strengthen the bond of collective harmony, brotherhood and amity which are hallmarks of our nation’s growth and development.
Oba Agbede said that the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr marks the culmination of the Holy Month of Ramadan, the month of prayers and supplications, blessings and forgiveness. He said the spirit behind the observance of this season for Muslims brothers and sisters is to express their appreciations to Almighty Allah for giving them the courage to observe the fast in the month of Ramadan and rededicate themselves to the truthfulness, sincerity, self control, patience and human dignity, showing complete obedience to Allah.
Also, he reminds every member of the community their obligations and responsibilities towards others, especially the poor and downtrodden for peaceful coexistence and equitable progress of the state and nation at large. He said it is important to forgive one another of our mistakes and forget the past.
Oba Agbede therefore reminds every Nigerian of the importance of love, peace and unity in the process of building a glorious nation where there is no place for hatred. He enjoined all Muslims across the nation to use this season of celebration to pray for the continued peace, prosperity and development of our country Nigeria.
