It is indeed amazing what this man has done.In this era and age where we have so many religious fanatics and bigots,someone has chosen to stand out and abide by the universal principle instituted by the Creator of the universe which is LOVE.Everyone claims his or her religion is the best,while adherents of other religion are termed ‘pagans”.How pathetic!It’s quite instructive to note that we are first and foremost humans,created by the same God.And since we have the same source,it logically means we are brothers and sisters.This must have been on the mind of Toluwase Olaniyan when he embarked on the mission of feeding the poor on Sallah day.Hear him “It all started with sleepless nights, burning passion and desire to lighten up the lives of many who live around me.At Easter we had it big on the streets of lagos sharing love and materials with the less privileged.
Today, it became bigger, I am not a Muslim but my dream came real celebrating this festive period with my Muslims friends particularly those less privileged ones who live and beg on the street. The smiles and happiness on their faces gave me hope.
If this was what I was born to do, it’s about time I did it,and did it well.
Thanks to my Amazing team who made this real. Thanks to the hausa traditional head at Ijora.I’m Most grateful to God Almighty who has planted me in this generation.Today! The future of Africa looks better! Heaven rejoices.Candles lighting other candles…”
This is practical living.Let’s emulate this exemplary display of love and service to humanity!
