Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, urged politicians to avoid using expletives and the culture of demeaning and humiliating opponents in this season of elections.
The president also promised that he would ensure free, fair and transparent elections in 2023.
Buhari, who urged Muslims to practise the noble and shining virtues of Prophet Muhammad, said, “The best way to honour him is to follow his good examples.”
On his part, Senate President Ahmad Lawan urged Muslims to emulate the virtues of Prophet Muhammad as adherents of the Islamic faith across the world mark the birth of the holy prophet.
Lawan enjoined Muslims to use the occasion for deep reflection on the virtuous life of Prophet Mohammed and the message of peace, love, tolerance, humility, fairness and justice, which he preached in words and deeds.
