President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has felicitated with the Muslim Ummah on the occasion of the Eid al-Maulud, which commemorates the birth of Holy Prophet Muhammad (SLM).
In a statement released to journalists, Senator Lawan believes the occasion should remind Muslims and all people of faith of the virtues of peaceful coexistence, love and tolerance as taught and lived by the Holy Prophet.
“Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) set clear examples through his life of piety and fervent worship of Allah for all true Muslims to emulate at all times.
“Doing so is particularly important now when these virtues are required for healing our land and strengthening our bond as humans, people of faith and Nigerians.
“The Federal Government and the National Assembly will continue to work assiduously to create the enabling environment for peaceful coexistence and prosperity in Nigeria,” Lawan said.
The Senate President who wishes all a happy celebration, also reminds Nigerians to continue observing the Covid-19 health protocols during the celebration and after.
He also enjoins Nigerians to pray for, and continue to support the law enforcement and security forces in their “valiant and patriotic efforts to protect every citizen.”
