According to him, “while we are celebrating this year’s birth of a great extraordinary human being, honest, trustful and noble Prophet; there is need for all of us to reflect on our life, challenges and poor condition affecting the generality of an ordinary Nigerian, in which lives are being destroyed, suffering is increasing despite the enormous resources the country is blessed with.
“I, therefore, urged all of us to put politics aside, stand together for the other people that are still suffering to help, pray for Almighty Allah’s intervention to alleviate their conditions and continue to offer prayers for peace, unity, and cohesion in the country
“Muslims should imbibe the great virtues and teaching of noble Prophet (peace be upon him) to mankind that includes forgiveness, trust, and support to others, especially from weaker ones so the Country can develop better”, he said.
