The Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain, in a statement made available to southwest-frontier.com said the festival which is symbolised by slaughtering of rams as commanded by Allah, should be used to further foster unity and spread love in Egbeda/Ona-Ara, Oyo state and Nigeria as a whole.
He added that though the country is going through a trying period, the Eid-el-Kabir should serve as an opportunity to supplicate and seek the face of God, for restoration and healing.
He further urged Muslims to remember those who don’t have and share the merriment with them.
“As our Muslim brothers celebrate, let us be moderate and remember those who don’t have in our neighborhood and share the merriment with them. Let us remember Nigeria and in particular, Oyo State, in our supplications”, Hon Gbaroye was quoted to be saying in the statement
On behalf of myself and member of my family, I congratulate our Muslim brothers all over the world on the occasion of the 2022 Eid-el-Kabir,” he added.
