In an interview, Oba Rafiu urged individuals to seek forgiveness and repent from sins, highlighting the importance of sincerity and collective support for national development.

“We must consistently seek repentance for our sins and earnestly request forgiveness, recognizing that we are all prone to wrongdoing. It’s crucial to approach this process with sincerity, extending it not only to ourselves but also to our nation’s leadership and fellow citizens. While the government requires our unwavering support, we must also acknowledge that it cannot shoulder the burden alone. By collectively rallying behind our president, state, and local governments, we contribute to the greater good. Ultimately, we entrust the outcomes to the divine providence of Almighty Allah,” he affirmed.

Echoing Oba Rafiu’s sentiments, Prince Ademola Adetola welcomed guests to the event, expressing optimism about the opportunity for spiritual growth and communal resilience in navigating Nigeria’s economic challenges.

She emphasized the need for collective efforts to groom future leaders, citing the importance of mentorship and community service in shaping the next generation.

“A child is born into a family, but it takes a community to raise them. Figures like Elejinrin and Chief Akintola served as exemplary role models during my upbringing. Now, as we witness the emergence of a new generation of Ejinrin youth, it’s essential to ponder who will succeed them in the future. We cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past, where our ancestors departed and our community dwindled into obscurity. I implore all mothers to take an active role in nurturing vibrant youths who will uphold our legacy. Let us be vigilant, guiding our children, and fostering a supportive environment to ensure the continued prosperity of our beloved Ejinrin Kingdom,” she averred.
