As Muslims across the world mark the 2020 Eid-el-Kabir, former Chairman, Lagelu local government, Honourable Biodun Oladeji have expressed greetings, and called for prayers for Oyo State and Lagelu local government.
Hon Oladeji in a statement by his media office urged the people of the state and the council to make individual sacrifices for the betterment of the council area and greater good of humanity.
He said that there is need for tolerance as intolerance, extremism and bigotry, if unchecked, could threaten peace and unity in any society while peace and unity are the greatest assets that should not be taken for granted by the people.
“During this festival of the feast, we should ensure that we truly imbibe the virtues of Prophet Ibrahim, who, in obedience to God’s directive, sacrificed his only son.
“Beyond the sacrifice, we should also not relent in praying for peace, unity and religious tolerance, which are essential to sustaining the glory of our dear nation,” Hon Oladeji said.
