Maulud: Atiku congratulates Muslims, urges peaceful coexistence

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar urges Muslims to use religion as a vehicle for the promotion of love, unity and understanding in the country. 

This was contained in his message to Muslims in the country to mark the Maulud celebration in remembrance of the birth of Prophet Muhammad.

Atiku notes that religious tolerance is a prerequisite for stable and peaceful country and that religious leaders should use their positions of influence to spread love, tolerance and respect for others who are different.

Given our ethnic, cultural and religious diversity in the country, our religious leaders should at all times be alert to any threat to peace on account of incendiary utterances in the name of preaching.

According to the PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, peace and tolerance are essential for practising our individual faith happily.

He said that “Prophet Muhammad was a paragon of peace, humility and justice for all, and as we honour him on this great occasion, let us follow his examples in words and actions.”

The Wazirin Adamawa also called on Muslim leaders to work hard to fight religious bigotry which has been responsible for planting the seeds of hate and violence in the country. 

Senate President preaches love, peace, tolerance at Eid-El-Maulud

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has felicitated with Muslim faithful on the commemoration of this year’s Eid-El-Maulud.

Lawan, in his goodwill message, urged Muslims and Nigerians in general to imbibe the virtues of peace, tolerance, justice and love for one another as exemplified by Prophet Muhammad.

Lawan said the birthday of the Holy Prophet should be an occasion for renewal of commitment to ideals that will enhance peace and prosperity in Nigeria.

He charged Muslims in particular to always emulate the virtues of Prophet Muhammad which include honesty, love for others and peaceful co-existence.

“Prophet Muhammad preached and lived for peace and that is the virtue expected of every Muslim, particularly in a diverse society such as ours.

“This year’s occasion is another opportunity to further thank the Almighty Allah for his continued guidance and intervention in the challenges in our society,” Lawan said.

The Senate President said the ninth National Assembly will continue to do its utmost to make a positive impact in the lives of Nigerians through appropriate legislations.

Gbajabiamila congratulates Muslims on Eid-Maulud, urges prayers

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has congratulated the Nigerian Muslims for this year’s Eid-Maulud celebration.

Gbajabiamila said Maulud, which is to mark the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW), is a time for sober reflections.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker urged Nigerian Muslims to use the occasion to pray for continuous peaceful coexistence in the country.

The Speaker also urged Muslims to imbibe the good teachings and the leadership qualities of the Holy Prophet, which he exhibited during his time.

He called on them to use the occasion to promote unity among the diverse people of Nigeria, noting that peace and unity are key to the development of the country.

“I join millions of Nigerians to congratulate our Muslim brothers and sisters for witnessing this year’s Eid-Maulud. It is indeed an occasion worth celebrating.
