Eid el-Maulud: Ugwuanyi salutes Muslims
As Muslims celebrate Eid el-Maulud, which is to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of peace, love, unity, patience, tolerance and perseverance reflective of cherished virtues exemplified by the Prophet.
In his goodwill message, Ugwuanyi conveyed felicitations of the government and the good people of Enugu to the Muslim faithful.
The governor, who asked God to shower His endless blessings on Muslims and all Nigerians, stressed that the significance of the occasion is compelling and relevant to the promotion and sustainability of values of the nation’s founding fathers: progress, unity and peaceful co-existence of Nigerians.
Ugwuanyi, therefore, enjoined the Muslim faithful to devote the occasion to praying for the peaceful and successful conduct of the 2023 general elections in the country.
“May this milestone celebration bring us peace, hope and fulfilment our country needs to forge ahead,” the governor said while wishing Muslims a pleasant celebration and Nigerians a happy holiday.
