The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi has enjoined the Muslim faithful to device Islam to uphold the unity of Nigeria.
In an Eid Fitri message by Oluwo through his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, the Paramount Ruler reiterated his voice to a united Nigeria, saying Muslims have a fundamental role to play through demonstration and preaching of peace Islam represents.
He condemned banditry as unIslamic, stating the need to flush out elements using Muslim names to perpetrate atrocities thereby endangering a peaceful religion.
He called on religious leaders to commit a higher percentage of their sermons in entrenching unity.
According to the monarch: “I congratulate all Muslim faithful on this year Eid Fitri. This is no doubt another delicate season in the history of mankind most especially in Nigeria where we are not left out of the ravaging coronavirus plus the fragile security threatening our unity. Muslims must respect peace as the tenet of their religion and uphold one Nigeria.”
“As a Muslim, we need to surprise the world such that the bad eggs using Muslim names to perpetrate atrocities can be easily identified and prosecuted”
“I appeal to Muslims to respect the words of Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad. Also, Christians should respect the Bible and the words of Jesus Christ. Doing so will make our country saner with lesser security issues. Let’s be an example and symbol of what the two religions represent” Oluwo concluded.
