Katsina State Governor Dikko Umaru Radda has urged people of all faiths in Nigeria to practice genuine brotherhood and kindness toward their fellow man.
“Doing so will greatly assist in engendering national peace, unity, and integration in a pluralistic society like ours,” Radda added.
He made the request while extending his best wishes to Muslims across the state, the nation, and the world on the occasion of Eid-il-Maulud 2023.
He argued that Muslims might better remember and encourage one another to adopt Prophet Muhammad’s (S.A.W.) exemplary personality and social characteristics of honesty, justice, compassion, and care for people during the Maulud religious festival.
He said, “Our pious and revered Prophet Muhammad was an iconic and legendary Messenger of God, who led a life of unmistakable piety, pure humility, astounding level of sincerity, genuine love for humanity, high sense of gratitude, sheer perseverance, true generosity, and stellar modesty.”
He said that Muslims in the country should renew their dedication to righteousness and other spiritual deeds that only portray the Islamic religion and their own personality features in the most spectacular form in honor of the anniversary of the birth of the Holy Prophet of Allah.
“More importantly, I charged Muslims across Katsina and the rest of the country with demonstrating love to all people, regardless of their affiliation. On the one hand, we Nigerians should all make an effort to display admirable character traits. Now is the time for all of us to work together patriotically to make Nigeria a thriving nation,” he added.
