An Islamic cleric, Sheikh Khalif Quasim Akilapa has urged Nigerians to always demonstrate humanity through justice, tolerance and service to the people.
Sheikh Akilapa said this would not only elevate individuals but guarantee a peaceful society.
He stated these while delivering a maiden Ramadan lecture titled: “Humanity” organized by the Oyo South senatorial candidate of PDP in the just concluded general election, Chief Joseph Tegbe held at Mapo Hall, Ibadan.
Sheikh Akilapa said Islam which is the religion of peace forbids one to condemn other religions, admonishing people to always tolerate one another irrespective of their religious affiliations.
In an interview, the organiser of the programme, Chief Joseph Tegbe who pointed out that he had been supporting Islamic programmes in the past, said he only contributed his quota by adding to the knowledge sharing amongst Muslims.
Chief Tegbe, therefore, enjoined Muslims to follow the lessons learnt during Ramadan as fasting is gradually winding up.
