The teachings of the Prophet are lessons in devotion and dedication

I felicitate with our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State, and across the Federation on the commemoration of the birthday of Prophet Mohammed (SAW).

The birth, life, and teachings of the Prophet are lessons in devotion and dedication, and indeed, worthy of celebration.

Often celebrated with family, it is a time to as a unit,  profess the Muslim faith to one another, reminding each other of the teachings of the Prophet and strengthening their faith. If we can get it right at the smallest unit of society which is the family, it will be easier to fix the ills that have become prevalent in the larger society.

Beyond celebrating with immediate family, we should also extend a hand of fellowship to others around us, regardless of affiliations, creed, and religion.

We must also take time to reflect on the teachings of the Prophet, especially as it relates to our dear Nation, Nigeria. We must embrace charity to one another, living a life of piety, while doing our part towards ensuring our peaceful co-existence as a Nation.

Thus, I enjoin us all to in these times, continue to seek God’s intervention in all our affairs as a nation.

Once again, I congratulate you all and wish you Eid Mubarak.
