The monarch emphasised the need to live in peace, by being their brothers’ keepers and be kind to one another.

The Former Local Government Chairman Egbe/Idimu Council re-emphasised the need to pray for the newly elected leaders taking over the mantle of leadership in the country for the success of the administration especially the President Elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu whom he described as a detrabilised and Visionary leader.

“Nigerians should pray for Peace, love and unity, we should stop fighting and killing one another, rather we should embrace each other as brothers and sisters.

“Our new President-elect has a lot to deliver, so, all we have to do is to be patient with him because he has done it before when he was the Governor of Lagos State. Take a look at the transformation going on in Lagos, being executed by past and present governors, are all Asiwaju’s masterpiece,” he submitted.

Oba Ashimiyu wished everyone in Egbe kingdom and its environs long life and prosperity as they celebrate with love.
