Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Prince Matthew Kolawole has congratulated Muslims worldwide on the celebration of this year Eid-el-Maulud.
He said as the Muslim faithfuls commemorate this year’s Eid-el-Maulud, he called on all Nigerians to intensify prayers on the challenges confronting the nation, pointing out that it is through intensified prayers, abiding faith in God and commitment to the core values of the nation’s founding fathers that the country’s efforts at sustaining peace, unity and progress will be fully actualized.
He called on Kogites to continue to pray and support the New Direction Administration led by Governor Yahaya Bello’s efforts to keep the state safe for the good of all, noting that the Assembly will continue to work with relevant stakeholders to make laws that will promote good governance in the state.
The Speaker noted that the Islamic event was timely and remarkable as it will go a long way in reinvigorating the virtues of peaceful co-existence, unity, faith, sacrifice, obedience, love, tolerance and charity as exemplified by the deeds and teachings of Holy Prophet Muhammad.
The Speaker therefore on behalf of his family, Kabba/Bunu State Constituency, entire members of the 7th Assembly, management and staff of the Kogi State House of Assembly wished all Nigerians a peaceful and pleasant celebration and enjoined the youth to embrace peace and avoid any act that could undermine the unity and security of the country.
