The Speaker of the House of Representatives Abbas Tajudeen, has urged Islamic adherents to emulate the Prophet, noting that his life and teachings will continue to inspire more generations to come.

Abbas made this call while congratulating Muslims Ummah across the country on the occasion of the 2023 Eid-el-Maulud, to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The speaker said the period calls for sober reflection on the life and time of the Holy Prophet, who was the most peace-loving human being to have ever lived on earth.

“I urge not only Muslims but all Nigerians to imbibe virtues such as charity, forgiveness, honesty, and patriotism, saying these are some of the qualities that leaders, and followers alike, should have to be able to have peace and progress in their country.

“I urge Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for their political, religious, and traditional leaders while expressing hope that the prayers and collective efforts by all stakeholders will take the country out of its current challenges,” a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi, quoted the speaker as saying.
