The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has advised parents to warn their children to avoid violence.

Receiving a group of Ife Muslim community on a visit to his palace on Sunday as part of the Eid-el-Fitr celebration in Ile-Ife, Oba Ogunwusi urged the youths to focus their attention on things that would bring progress and development to the country.

The Ooni thanked Allah for giving the Muslim faithful the grace to witness the 2017 Eid-el-Fitr and congratulated them on the festival.

According to him, 70 per cent of Nigeria’s population is made up of youth. He therefore appealed to them to shun inflammatory statements that could cause chaos.

He urged them to rather pursue and champion peaceful coexistence across the nation.

The Ooni charged all tribes to shun incitement, but rather focus on productive activities and things that would strengthen the nation.

Oba Ogunwusi urged those in position of authority to concentrate in engaging the youths in gainful employment.

Earlier, the Chief Iman of Ifeland, Alhaji Abdul Semiu AbdulHammed advised Muslims to emulate Prophet Mohammed and uphold the pillars of Islam.

AbdulHammed urged Muslim faithful to work with the fear of Allah and also maintain peace and harmony with their children and families.

He urged the government to ease the sufferings of Nigerians and pay salaries regularly.

Also speaking, Alhaji Saka Fawole, the Secretary to Ife Muslim Community charged Muslims to continue worshipping Allah in truth and holiness, and not to go back to sinful acts after the Ramadan. (NAN)
