Eid-el-Maulud: Senate President Preaches Peace, Love, Tolerance

President of tne Senate, Ahmad Lawan has felicitated with Nigerians, particularly the Muslim Ummah, on the occasion of this year's Eid-el-Maulud, which is the celebration of the birth of Prophet Mohammed.

A statement signed by the Special Adviser (Media) to the President of the Senate, Ola Awoniyi, said this year's celebration comes at a time that Nigeria is striving to restore law and order in the chastening aftermath of the #EndSARS protest.

"Our harrowing experience over the past few weeks underscores the need for us as a people of faith to imbibe and demonstrate in our every conduct the virtues of love, peace and tolerance which Prophet Mohammed personifies.

"This trying time requires our prayers and supplications to Allah to intervene to restore peace and love of neighbours to our land. However, it also requires of us introspection as to the roles we are playing as leaders and individual citizens in building the nation that we desire.

"Having made their points in their patriotic demands for better policing and political governance, and having secured the commitment of the government to addressing the issues that they have raised, I urge our youths to in the spirit of this occasion embrace peace and engage government through dialogue, as the corrections they seek can only manifest under a peaceful atmosphere," Lawan said.

The Senate President reiterated the commitment of the ninth National Assembly to "the entrenchment of processes that will encourage our youths to tap their talents and pursue their dreams for the elevation of our great country."

Lawan expresses confidence that "the trials we are going through will ultimately strengthen our bonds as citizens of the same nation and propel Nigeria to its great destiny."
