Above is mail I just received from someone close who wanted to be gentle with his “correction”! Thanks, a million.
I’m from one of those one-religion towns and even up till this day, there is no mosque in my town in Ondo State. I know the celebration is Ileya in Yoruba and I also know “Greater Beiram”; Eid Il Fitri jist as I know Id Il Kabir!
In Nigeria – at least the Southwest – Ileya is the popular name of this celebration. I plead ignorance which is supposedly no excuse in law but as this is no legal wahala, readers will understand.
Thanks. Regards, TOLA.>
