Kogi Western Senatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), Hon Muhammed Ibukun Abubakar Bukky, has felicitated with Muslims as they join adherents of the faith across the world in marking the birth of Prophet Mohammed.
Bukky, in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokojay, enjoined Muslim faithful to use the occasion for deep reflection on the virtuous life of Prophet Mohammed and the message of peace, love, tolerance, humility, fairness and justice which he preached in words and deeds.
“I felicitate fellow Muslims as we celebrate the birth of Prophet Mohammed and what he stands for.
“As we mark this occasion, we should imbibe the virtues of the Prophet which include peace, love, tolerance, humility, fairness and justice.
“It is by imbibing these virtues in our personal lives and as a people that the celebration of his birth can have meaning,” Bukky said.
