As Muslims all over the world celebrate the 2021 Eid-el-Kabir festival, Nigerian People have been urged to maintain religious tolerance and peace in the country.

Osun Governor Gboyega Oyetola said this on Tuesday after the two rakats prayer at Osogbo central Eid, Oke-Baale, Osogbo.

While congratulating the Muslim faithful, the governor harped on the need to live in peace despite the religious differences.

He said, "I congratulate all the Muslims in Osun State, in Nigeria and all the whole world at large. We thank God that we are able to celebrate this year’s celebration. Last year, we couldn’t celebrate it. But we thank God for giving us the grace to be here today.

"I want to enjoin our people to live in peace. They should extend hands of fellowship to the less privileged. They deserve to celebrate as well.
