Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong has congratulated the Muslim Ummah in Nigeria as they join their counterparts worldwide to  mark this year’s Eid-el Maulud .

The Governor in a message on behalf of his colleagues to commemorate the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, said the special occasion brings to remembrance the teachings of the Holy Prophet who emphasized love, forgiveness, peaceful coexistence and humility among others.

He said the failure of humanity to practice love is what has given rise to selfishness, violence, intolerance, religious bigotry, ethnic hatred, corruption, high crime rate and unimaginable level of wickedness that is prevalent in various forms.

Lalong said this celebration should be used as a moment for reflection and reconsideration of the fortunes of the nation which can be changed if all Muslims live their lives according to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as contained in the Holy Qur’an.

He said Nigeria is in dire need of inter-religous harmony and dialogue, practical faith based conduct as well as truthful lifestyles that unite people and enhances their ability to experience and share love with one another irrespective of their faiths, education, economic status and ethnicity.

While wishing the Muslim community a successful celebration, Governor Lalong assured them that the Northern Governors Forum will continue to work hard in promoting peace, tolerance, national unity and religious harmony particularly in the present circumstances where the nation is in need of a common front to overcome, corruption, insurgency, fight poverty and accelerate development.
