The President and founder, African Broadband Limited, owners of RoyalFM, RoyalTimes and RoyalTV online, Engineer Gbenga Adebayo, has felicitated with Muslim faithful as they celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, with an admonition for all to remain steadfast and committed in service to humanity.
He also urged them to use this Salah occasion to pray for the nation, as it strives to overcome her numerous challenges.
In a statement issued to congratulate Muslim faithful for this year’s celebration, Adebayo charged Muslims to uphold the lessons of the festival, which include piety, love, peace, honesty and generosity, especially to the needy, during this season and after.
The entrepreneur tasked Nigerians to be willing to sacrifice as demonstrated by Prophet Ibrahim, his wife and son, Ismael. According to him, only a people who imbibe these qualities can exalt a nation.
Engineer Adebayo, who appealed for a peaceful celebration, also congratulated Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibraheem Zulu Gambari, and the peace-loving people of Kwara on the occasion of this year’s Durbar festival.
The media mogul noted that the return of the festival not only adds color to the season, but also projects the cultural heritage of Kwara and its people.
