Eid-el-Fitr: Emir of Ilorin urges Muslims to pray for quick recovery over COVID-19 pandemic

The Emir of Ilorin and Chairman, Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has called on all Muslim ummahs and Nigerians at large not to relent in their prayers for economic prosperity, peace, and unity across all facets of the nation’s economy.
The emir said this in a statement issued in Ilorin yesterday signed by his media aide, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona, shortly after observing the Eid-el-Fitr two Rakat prayers along with members of his immediate family in his palace to mark the end of this year’s Ramadan fast in line with the COVID-19 safety protocols of the federal government, This Day reports.
He noted that the growth and development of any nation depends heavily on the harmonious working relationship among her citizens.
The monarch also implored the Muslim faithful to imbibe culture of tolerance, patience, charity, and perseverance as preached in the Holy Quran and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), adding that the Ramadan fast has left behind good legacies worthy of adopting always.
He added that stay-at-home and movement restriction orders which have affected the convergence of worshippers at the Central Yidi prayer ground remain the best option in a bid to further curtail the spread of COVID-19 infection in the state.
