Ooni greets Christians urges Nigerians to foster peaceful coexistence

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II has felicitated with Christians across the country with a call on Nigerians to foster peaceful coexistence amongst one another.
In statement issued on his behalf by his media aide, Moses Olafare on Saturday, Oba Ogunwusi described Jesus Christ as the lord of peace and love with an unparalleled forgiving spirit who should always be remembered and honoured with the existence of love and peace by Christians.
According to the monarch, the best way to do this was for Nigerians to foster harmonious co-existence by all Nigerians as achieved by Jesus Christ who lived and died over 2000 years ago.
Oba Ogunwusi stated that the people of the world must see themselves as one before the God almighty and must treat one another with forgiveness, peace and love as symbolized by Jesus Christ if the world must be a conducive place for everyone to survive.
“There is no greater gift and honour you can give to Jesus Christ other than exhibition of forgiving spirit, display of love and ensurance of absolute peace because these are what the lord Jesus symbolizes.
“We all must see ourselves as equal before the almighty God who purposefully created us with different cultural backgrounds. The surest way of achieving the much needed global harmony is when we always imbibe the spirit of forgiveness and extend hand of love and peace to one another, with this Jesus Christ will be happy in heaven, God will always smile to us and of course the world will become a better place for all of us to dwell happily”.
