Elegushi celebrates Eid-el-Fitri with Muslims.
As Muslims the world over, on Tuesday, celebrated Eid-el-Fitri to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan, prominent Lagos king, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, sent congratulatory messages to Islamic faithfuls on the success of the season, noting that it is a fulfillment of God’s injunction.
Elegushi, in his statement, said that the sacrifices and piety associated with the holy month is a reminder to all Muslims on the need to show compassion, love and tolerance to one another, as well as other faiths. He further affirmed that this was demonstrated throughout the period.
“The good deeds and values shared during the holy month should be sustained, even as the season ends.
“These are the necessary tonics needed to promote peaceful co-existence amongst all Nigerians,” he stated.
He urged Muslims to continue to live in harmony with their neighbours and obey the laws of the land, expressing confidence that the challenges confronting the nation will be a thing of the past in no time.
