Niger State governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello has admonished the Muslim Ummah to emulate the unique conduct and exemplary lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) towards the advancement of a better society even as he urged politicians to play politics without bitterness and rancour.
The governor, in a message to commemorate this year’s Eid-el Maulud signed by his chief press secretary, Jibrin Ndace, said the society would be a better place to live in for all of us if every Muslim would abide by and act in accordance with the teachings of the Holy Prophet.
Governor Sani-Bello noted that the life of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), from birth to death, is not only a lesson for those who reflect but a panacea to our numerous socio-political and economic woes.
He said that Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and indeed Islam generally preached peace, tolerance, unity and cohesion stressing that it is only on those platform that the society could progress and not through indecent and deviant behaviours.
“We join all Muslim Ummah in celebrating the messenger of Allah through whom the Holy Qur’an was revealed to mankind. Indeed, the life the prophet lived should always serve as an inspiration to the faithful and his piety as a model for all of us,” he said.
The governor also used the opportunity to call on the political class to eschew bitterness, rancour and any other act that will infringe on the social stability of the state in particular and the nation as a whole as we enter the campaigns and electioneering period stressing that the state is bigger than any individual(s) or interests.
Governor Sani-Bello reiterated his administration’s resolve to take developmental projects to the door steps of the electorates stressing that the APC-led administration remains the most credible, virile and trusted that will bring service delivery closer to the people and enhance sustainable development for the collective good of all.
