All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has urged Muslim faithful to extend love and goodness to one another and imbibe the virtues of Prophet Muhammed (SAW), which include tolerance, forgiveness, peaceful coexistence and sacrifice.

He also called for prayers for peaceful, free and fair elections in 2023, adding that Nigerians “must elect only leaders committed and determined to make the required difference in our lives.”

He felicitated with Muslims in Nigeria and around the world on the occasion of the Eid-el-Maulud Festival, birth of Prophet Mohammed (SAW).

The APC presidential candidate and former Lagos governor also asked Muslim Ummah and others to offer prayers for the country to overcome its present challenges.

In a statement by his Media Office, Tinubu also sympathised with the victims of the recent flooding in Kogi, Edo and Nasarawa states, urging urged the Federal and the state governments concerned to take immediate efforts to mitigate the effects of the disaster and initiate measures to thwart future occurrence.

He said, “I felicitate and rejoice with Muslim in Nigeria and around the world on this occasion of Eid- Maulud.

“This festival offers yet another opportunity for all of us to reflect and spread love and goodness to one another. We must strive to imbibe those virtues Prophet Muhammed (SAW) is noted and adored for, among them love, forgiveness, sacrifice, tolerance and peaceful coexistence.

“While praying fervently for Nigeria to confront the challenges besetting her, we must also enjoin our Islamic Ummah to seek Allah’s intercession.

“I sympathize again with victims of recent flooding in Kogi, Edo and Nasarawa states and pray that Almighty Allah comfort them and their families.

“Governments at all levels must immediately extend relief materials to them, take efforts to mitigate the effects of the disaster and initiate measures against future occurrence. It is regrettable and hurtful to see hundreds of our people rendered homeless and forlorn with their properties, farmlands and other valuables lost to the floods.

“And as we go into another round of elections next year, let me also use this opportunity to seek prayers for a peaceful, hitch-free and successful election. We must elect only leaders committed and determined to make the required difference in our lives. Let us pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders to continue to do their utmost for the country.”
