The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Tajudeen Abbas, has greeted the Nigerian Muslim Ummah on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Maulud, which marks the birth of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
Abbas, in his message to commemorate the anniversary holding on Wednesday, urged Islamic adherents to emulate the Prophet, noting that his life and teachings will continue to inspire more generations to come.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi, the Speaker said the period called for sober reflection on the life and time of the Holy Prophet, whom he said was the most peace-loving human being to have ever lived on earth.
He urged not only Muslims but all Nigerians to imbibe virtues such as charity, forgiveness, honesty and patriotism, saying these are some of the qualities that leaders, and followers alike should have to be able to have peace and progress in the country.
The Speaker also enjoined Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for their political, religious and traditional leaders, while expressing hope that the prayers and collective efforts by all stakeholders will take the country out of its current challenges.
Similarly, Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, congratulated Muslims faithful on this year’s celebration of Eid-el-Maulud.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Levinus Nwabughiogu, Kalu urged Muslims to imbibe the teachings of Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and show love to one another, especially the needy in the society.
The Deputy Speaker also asked adherents of Islam and indeed, all Nigerians to continue to uphold the values of peace and unity and pray fervently for the progress of the country, assuring that the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not fail Nigerians.
Kalu said the 10th House was working on legislations that will improve the economy and the living conditions of Nigerians, urging the people not to be weary in their hope for a better future.
For his part, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, felicitated with the Muslim Ummah, teeming supporters of the party and all Nigerians on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Maulud celebration.
Dr. Ganduje, in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Edwin Olofu, called on Nigerians, irrespective of their religions and political leanings, to remain tolerant and imbibe the culture of peaceful coexistence required for the unity and progress of the country.
Ganduje used the occasion to appeal to all Nigerians to continue to support and pray for President Tinubu as he tackles the economic and security challenges facing the country.
He noted: “Warmest wishes to you and your loved ones on this day. May Allah fill your heart with lots of joy, peace, and good health.
“Let us also use the occasion to pray for our country and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he takes very bold steps to reposition the country on the path of growth and prosperity.
“The APC-led administration needs your support, understanding and indeed sacrifice to end the present economic downturn. This will engender our path to economic revival and rejuvenation of the well-being of all citizens.
“May Allah’s blessings light up the path that leads to happiness, peace, and success for you and your household. Happy Eid-El-Maulud.”
