He said: “I wish my Muslim brothers and sisters, in Nigeria and across the globe, joyous and spiritually uplifting Eid el-Maulud celebrations. We thank Almighty Allah for making us see this glorious day set aside to celebrate the birth of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him).
“As we mark this day, let us remember, cherish and imbibe virtues Prophet Muhammad exemplified. He exemplified virtues of patience, love, tolerance and perseverance. He devoted his life to building understanding among people while pursuing his faith. He had respect for other people’s faiths. His approach and disposition enhanced the search for peace and security.
“Our dear country is still grappling with insecurity. Enemies of the state and other criminal elements have been carrying out acts of destabilisation and sabotage against our country and its people,” Sani added.
ALSO, Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, has congratulated the Muslim Ummah on the celebration of Eid el-Maulud, urging them to use the occasion of the prophet’s birth to reflect on essential lessons of his life and times.
