President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has felicitated the Muslim faithful on the occasion of Eid-El-Maulud celebration.
Akpabio, in a message by Mr Eseme Eyiboh, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity on Tuesday in Abuja, said Eid-El-Maulud was another opportunity to reminiscence on the virtuous legacies left behind by the Holy Prophet.
He said Prophet Mohammed left behind positive marks on humanity for which His followers should emulate.
Akpabio enjoined the Muslim faithful to increase their prayers for those in authority and for the nation.
“The occasion of the birthday of the Holy Prophet is a reminder to all adherents of the Islamic religion to rededicate themselves to prayerfully support those in authority and for the nation.
“Even more, it is an opportunity for everyone of us to devote ourselves to uncommon godly citizenship and love for one another.
“It is time for everyone, whether Muslim or not to accentuate the positive ambience of our nationhood towards the collective goal of renewed hope for all,” he said.
He urged Muslims to draw on the virtues of patience, perseverance and the message of peace, which he said should be assimilated by everyone from Prophet Mohammed towards the collective goal of a greater and more peaceful nation.
He wished the Muslim faithful a happy celebration.
