He made this known in his Sallah message issued by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed on Sunday.

Adeleke who noted that the occasion underscored the reward of obedience and faith in Allah subhanawattahallah charged the Muslim faithful to take a cue from Prophet Ibrahim's (ASW) act of selflessness and submissive posture.

He called on the Muslim faithful to use the occasion to renew bonds and build a safe and healthy society. 

"I congratulate every Muslim on this significant Islamic festival and ask that we rededicate ourselves to upholding the essence of the occasion, which underscores sacrifice and faith in Allah.

"Let us use this period to uphold the spiritual benefit of the celebration by sharing love and togetherness across all divides, while not forgetting to seek the face of Allah for continuous peace and progress of Osun state and Nigeria as a whole.

"As a government, we are taking the lead on sacrifice in order to bring about a better situation for the people as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (ASW), and I urge the people to exercise this same attitude so as to achieve a better condition in the social, economic, and political landscape of not just Osun state but also Nigeria.

"I call for sustained support and prayer for our administration in our drive to transform Osun and make it the envy of other places not just in Nigeria, but across Africa."
