Island Club seeks unity among Christians, Muslims

15

The Island Club has called for unity among Christians and Muslims to ensure peaceful coexistence.

The club’s Chairman, Olabanji Oladapo, made the call at the weekend at its annual Ileya dance in Lagos.

At the programme, with the theme, 2018 Ileya Dance, Oladapo congratulated Muslim brothers and sisters for last month’s Ileya (Eid-el-Kabir) celebration.

The club’s chairman said the gathering was meant to celebrate them by Christians and fellow Muslims.

He added: “This gathering is a unifying factor for members as well as Muslims and Christians to celebrate and dance.

“At this time, when religion is becoming a dividing factor in Nigeria, it is important to note that we are all worshiping one God and we all believe in Him.

“Even though we have not seen Him, we must establish relationships with one another. We must agree with ourselves that we have to worship God and ensure peace among ourselves. Nobody is bigger than God.”

Oladapo said the club would continue to provide conducive atmosphere for its members.

He said: “At this programme, we have Christians and Muslims. In fact, Christians donated rams for this celebration. That shows how interwoven we are in the club as Christians and Muslims.”

The club chairman urged political leaders to put the interest of all at heart, ahead of next year’s general elections.

“They must believe that we have one country, which is Nigeria and everything they do must be to the interest of everybody,” he said.

The special guest, Sir Kensington Adebutu, urged the club to improve the lives of membership and show more love to one another.
