on

The Federal Government has declared Thursday October 29, 2020 as public holiday to mark this year’s Eidul-Mawlid in commemoration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, made the declaration on behalf of the government.

A statement signed by the Director of Press & Public Relations to the minister, Mohammed Manga, quoted Aregbesola as enjoining the Muslim faithful to imbibe the spirit of love, patience and perseverance, which he noted were the virtues of Prophet Muhammad, adding that doing so would guarantee peace and security in the country.

He also urged the Muslims to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran in Chapter 4 Verse 59 which says, “O you who believe! Obey God and obey the Messenger, and those from among you who are vested with authority; and if you are to dispute among yourselves about anything, refer it to God and the Messenger, if indeed you believe in God and the Last Day. This is the best (for you), and fairest in the end”

Aregbesola also urged Nigerians to abhor violence, lawlessness, wantonness and daylight robbery as witnessed across the country most recently.

According to him, Nigeria being the pride of the black race should provide responsible leadership for the greatness and development of the African continent and all black people.

He called for a stop to all divisive tendencies across the country, urging all Nigerians and the youth in particular, to embrace peace and cooperate with the current administration in its effort to build a virile nation, which all citizens would be proud of.

Aregbesola who described the youth as the hope and future of the nation advised them to deepen democracy and not dampen it.

He congratulated the Muslim faithful at home and abroad for witnessing this year’s celebration.
