Ramadan: Akarigbo hosts Muslims, advocates peaceful coexistence

The Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, has called for peaceful coexistence and religious harmony among Nigerians. The monarch spoke while hosting the Muslim community across Remoland at a special Ramadan lecture/Iftar held at his palace in Sagamu, Ogun State.

The event, with the theme: “The act of coexistence in the month of Ramadan and thereafter,” was attended by no fewer than 15 traditional rulers and several prominent personalities. In his remarks, Oba Ajayi noted that development thrives only in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. He urged religious leaders, irrespective of their persuasions, to use their positions to preach and spread unity, tolerance and peace among the people.

The Akarigbo, therefore, appealed to the adherents of different faiths in the country to respect the beliefs of one another. He also charged the Muslim Ummah to sustain all the lessons learnt during the holy month of Ramadan and shun all vices after the fasting.

The monarch thanked Allah for the successes already recorded in Remoland, including the establishment of a passport issuing office of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), since his assumption of the throne. While appealing to well-meaning indigenes to contribute their quota for development, Oba Ajayi promised to hold regular interactions with all religious groups for a peaceful co-habitation. Delivering his lecture, the guest lecturer, Imam Mikhail Adesanya, enjoined Muslims to continue good deeds after the Ramadan fasting.

Adesanya, who is the Eketa Adeen of Remo Kingdom, said Muslims should always fear their Creator and be conscious of the day of accountability. He said, “My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Ramadan has an end but your good deeds towards fellow mankind, irrespective of religious inclinations must not stop. That good deeds must continue.

“Please let us strive to be good to our neighbours because there is a reward for our every single act whether good or bad in the Hereafter.” The event also featured special prayers for the Ogun State government, the Akarigbo, Sagamu town and the entire Remoland
