Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger has urged Muslims to abide by the teachings of Prophet Muhammadu (S.A.W) as taught in the Holy Quran.
A statement by Bello’s Chief Press Secretary, Malam Jibrin Ndace, on Monday in Minna, said the society would be a better place if every Muslim would abide by and act in accordance with the teachings of the prophet.

According to the statement, We rejoice with all Muslim Ummah in celebrating the birth of the messenger of Allah through whom the Holy Qur’an was revealed to mankind.
Indeed, the life the prophet lived should always serve as an inspiration to the faithful and his piety, a model for all, it said.
Bello in the statement assured the people that the present economic hardship being experienced in the country, as a result of the recession, would soon be a thing of the past.
It urged Muslims to pray for an improvement in the country’s economy.
The statement added that government at all level would continue to come up with policies and programmes that would bring the country out of its current socio-economic challenges.
