‘Live and let live’, Asiwaju Musulumi charges Nigerians in Eid-el-Fitr message
Dr Khamis Olatunde Badmus, the Asiwaju Musulumi of Yorubaland, Edo and Delta States, has urged Nigerians to prioritize the welfare and comfort of their fellow citizens in their daily activities. In his Eid-al-Fitr message released from his media office in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, the business icon emphasized that love for one another is one of the significant lessons of Ramadan fast. Dr Olatunde-Badmus, who is currently in Saudi Arabia to perform the lesser Hajj, Umrah, pointed out that the basic standard of how the Supreme Being wants human beings to live is through self-discipline, generosity and kindness to others, self-denial, and consistent worship of Allah, which are among the lessons of Ramadan fast. He called on Muslims not to abandon the ascetic life they lived in Ramadan, but rather make it their lifestyle. Additionally, he urged all Nigerians to pray for the peace, progress, and development of Nigeria as “Project Nigeria” must be made workable. Olatunde-Badmus further emphasized that Muslims and Christians alike should pray for a successful transition on May 29th, this year when the President Elect, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, will take over as President of Nigeria.
