I celebrate with Muslim faithful in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and Nigeria as a whole on the celebration of the birth of Prophet Mohammed (SAW).
The birth of the Holy Prophet marks the beginning of the great life of service and teaching which he led. It is a time that calls for reflection on the purpose of his birth, his life, his teachings and laid down tenets.
We must at this time, continue to pray for the peace and prosperity of our Country, Nigeria. In light of recent spotlight on slave trade on the African Continent, we must also pray for our brothers and sisters who are being held against their will in these faraway lands. I also want to use this medium to encourage those intending to leave Nigeria illegally in search of greener pastures – Be patient. NIGERIA WILL BE GREAT AGAIN.
Thus I enjoin you all at this time and always, to embody the prophet’s teachings on love, peace, tolerance, faithfulness and holy living.
I wish you all happy Eid-el-Maulud and the blessings of the season.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu,OON
