Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, the Emir of Ilorin and chairman of the Kwara Council of Chiefs, has urged Muslims to uphold peace and unity with people of all races worldwide. 

He delivered this message to the Muslim community at the Ilorin Central Eid-Praying Ground during the 2024 Eid-el-Fitr celebration. 

Sulu-Gambari stressed the importance of maintaining a peaceful environment for meaningful development, emphasizing the necessity of fostering unity and harmony at all times. 

Despite the challenges confronting the nation, he commended the residents of Ilorin for their ability to coexist peacefully, urging them to express gratitude and offer prayers for continued peace and harmony.

“Be thankful to Almighty Allah for His mercies and protection over us and His endless blessings on the nation,” Sulu-Gambari said.


The emir condemned the act of kidnapping and other social vices persisting in some parts of the country.

Sulu-Gambari advised citizens to always support their leaders with fervent prayers and obey the laws for those in authority to deliver on their mandates.

He also sued for support for President Bola Tinubu and Gov. AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq to be successful.

He advised Muslims to always conduct themselves peacefully and desist from any form of problem, stressing that the praying ground should not be turned into a battlefield.

In his sermon, the Chief Imam of Ilorin, Mohammed Bashir, urged the Muslim faithful to remain committed to the commandments of Almighty Allah always.


He urged Muslims to be conscious of the fact that only Almighty Allah could determine who would witness the next Ramadan, thus advising all to always remain dutiful to Him.
