Jonathan Felicitates With Muslims On Eid-el-Maulud

goodluck-jonathan1-670x1012President Goodluck Jonathan has felicitated with all Nigerians, especially Muslims, as they celebrate Eid-el-Maulud, which commemorates the birth of Prophet Mohammed.

In a message released in Abuja on Wednesday to mark the occasion, the president urged all true believers in the Prophet’s divine message to continue to pray for peace in all parts of the country and resolve to do more to support ongoing efforts by the Federal Government and its security agencies to ensure safety of life and property in Nigeria.

He also called on them to offer special prayers for the officers and men of Nigeria’s security agencies at home and abroad “who are working very hard, days and nights, and sometimes making the supreme sacrifice for the security of the country and all who live in it.”

In the same vein, the President urged Muslim faithfuls to remember the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero and members of his family in their prayers and pray for their speedy recovery from the trauma of last week’s attack, and the peaceful repose of the souls of those who sadly lost their lives in the despicable assault on an icon of the  institution of traditional rulership in the country.

He enjoined all Muslims in the country to seize the opportunity of the Eid-el-Maulud celebrations to re-dedicate themselves to doing their best to live up to the ideals of honesty, selflessness, tolerance, good neighbourliness, justice, equity and fairness, which the Prophet preached and exemplified.

On behalf of himself, his family and the Federal Government, President Jonathan wished all Nigerians happy Eid-el- Maulud celebrations.
