Pray for peaceful elections

I felicitate with Muslim faithful in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and Nigeria on the commemoration of this year’s Eid-el-Maulud Celebration.

This celebration is a reminder of the command to love the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) which is demonstrated by following the guidance provided in his teachings on piety, faithfulness, tolerance and unity.

These teachings must be reflected in our lives, actions and relationships with others, particularly as electioneering season commences. In addition, we must put the unity of our great Country, Nigeria above all else, ensuring that the labour of our heroes past is not in vain.

Thus, I urge the Muslim Ummah to use this period to pray for peaceful conduct of the 2019 elections, oneness and the prosperity of Nigeria.

Once again, I congratulate you all and wish you happy Eid-el-Maulud
