Eid-el-Mawlud: Benin monarch charges Muslims on devotion


The Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, has felicitated with Muslim faithful on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Mawlud — the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.

This is contained in a statement by Mr Iguobaro Osaigbovo, Chief Press Secretary to Oba of Benin, urged Muslim faithful to be tolerant of one another’s religion, irrespective of race, tribe, party affiliation for national cohesion.

The monarch also urged the leadership and followers of Islam to rededicate themselves to the doctrines of Islam, adhere strictly to the virtues of Prophet Muhammad and prevent fundamentalists from making a cannon fodder of their faith.

It also advised government at all levels to redouble their efforts towards addressing the security challenges, reduce poverty and stem the rising menace of out-of-schools children who require protection from the vicissitudes of life in Nigeria.

Oba Ewuare II in the statement, prayed God Almighty and the ancestors to ward-off evil from Nigeria.
