Peaceful Coexistence As Muslim faithful across the globe prepare to celebrate Eid-el-Fitr, which marks the end of the Ramadan Fast, the Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu on Education, Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, has congratulated all muslims in the State for successfully completing the fasting period.
Wahab commended them for observing all the rites associated with fasting, noting that God would reward their perseverance, tolerance, inconveniences and self-deprivation in the cause of Allah. He urged Muslims to use the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitr celebration to pray for the unity of the country, mutual love and peaceful transition in the current democratic dispensation. The Special Adviser, who also urged Nigerians to come together and use the advantage of their diversity to build a united and stronger country that will be the pride of Africa, said that there is always strength in unity. He enjoined political gladiators across party lines to work together for the peace of the country, advising them to always ensure that elections are peacefully conducted to strengthen the nation’s democracy for the progress of the country.
Wahab said: “As we are moving towards another phase in our democratic experience, I urge all politicians to always place the unity of the country above any other considerations and play by the rules of the game. It is our country and nobody will come and build it for us. We should always be conscious of the vital position that Nigeria occupies among other African countries, we should show leadership by example through peaceful electoral processes and mutual love for one another”.
