The Arole Oduduwa & Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has congratulated Muslims in Nigeria and across the world, especially those of Yoruba origin as the holy month of Ramadan comes to an end with the annual Eid-el Fitri celebration.

In a statement by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare, the Ooni, who is the Co-Chairman, National Council of Traditional Rulers explained that there were reasons to celebrate and thank the Almighty Allah for His goodness and mercies in every situation.
“Celebration here is not the conventional merriment of social gathering as we all know that there is an order against that especially in this situation we are all faced with globally.
“We should celebrate in our various homes with our families by remembering Allah and why we should not give up in our hope of a better tomorrow.
“God in His infinite mercy shall accept our fasting and prayers including those we said against the rampaging Coronavirus and other enemies of humanity. We’ve been through a lot together and we can’t, but be grateful to God for keeping us.
“Although it is regrettable to realize that we cannot gather like before, especially for the annual congregational prayers, but we must make the best out of what we have while we hope and pray to be part of the brighter future,” Ooni said.
In the same vein, Ooni, who is the natural leader of the Oduduwa race worldwide, urged Nigerians to keep supporting the government in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic by observing the laid down precautionary measures including maintenance of social distancing, personal hygiene, regular hand washing and others.
