As the Muslim ummah mark this year’s Eid-el-Maulud, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) has urged Nigeria Muslims to use the occasion to reflect on the virtues of Prophet Mohammed (PBH) and imbibe same for a better Nigeria.

Director General of NOA, Dr. Garba Abari in a goodwill message to the Muslim faithful said Prophet Mohammed displayed virtues of selflessness, tolerance, peace, love and fairness, pointing out that these virtues will always be required in the Nigerian society if the nation must achieve its full potentials.

He said Nigeria is in need of patriotic and selfless citizens who will put national interest above self and go the extra mile to both defend the nation’s unity and uphold her power and glory.

He therefore called on Nigerians to join hands to build a better future for posterity and urged the Muslim faithful to exemplify the virtues of the Prophet of Islam while using the Eid-el-Maulud celebrations to pray for divine intervention in solving the nation’s security challenges.
