Sanwo-Olu congratulates Muslims on Maolud Nabiy, urges them to emulate prophet Mohammed


    Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, has congratulated Nigerian Muslim faithful on Maolud Nabiy, the birthday of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), urging Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to imitate the holy prophet’s life and noble values.

    Governor Sanwo-Olu said this in a goodwill message delivered by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Gboyega Akosile, to commemorate Maolud Nabiy, the holy prophet’s birthday, and urged Lagosians, particularly Muslims, to continue to tow the path of peace for the state’s sustainable prosperity.

    In line with Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) teachings, the governor advised Nigerians to embrace peace, harmony, and tolerance, adding that Muslims should stay tolerant and continue to work in harmony with other religious groups for a peaceful and violence-free society.

    He urged Muslims to use the occasion of the prophet’s birthday celebrations to deepen their love for one another and make the society a better place by avoiding tendencies that could jeopardize the country’s unity and stability.

    “Today, I join millions of people around the world, to wish our Muslim brothers and sisters in Lagos State and in Nigeria happy Maolud Nabiy, which is the birthday of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

    “Lagos is noted for religious harmony, therefore, I want to enjoin Muslims to continue to be tolerant of other religious denominations as they’ve always been in the state. The Muslim faithful in Lagos State should continue to live in peace and harmony with believers of other faiths,” Sanwo-Olu counselled.

    While commending Lagosians for their tenacity, endurance, and cooperation with his administration, the governor reassured Lagos residents of his administration’s commitment to good governance and people-centered programs.

    He stated that his administration was totally committed to improving people’ lives by delivering democracy’s dividends to Lagosians through his government’s THEMES development program for a ‘Greater Lagos.’
