The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged Nigerians, particularly the leaders, to use the Eid-el-Maulud celebrations to kindle a national rebirth with actions that reassure the people and reinforce the stability, unity and peaceful co-existence in the country.
The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, also charged all people of faith across the country to use the occasion to pray for direction and God’s intervention to enable the country overcome its current social, economic and security challenges.
“Indeed, Eid-el-Maulud, the celebration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Mohammed, offers us as a nation, an invaluable opportunity to reposition our value system in pursuit of national unity, equity and social justice; adherence to rule of law, respect for human rights, welfare of the people, transparency, accountability and prudence in governance while shunning all acts of corruption and oppression that provoke bitterness, restiveness and division among the people,” the party added.
The PDP urged the Federal Government to use the occasion of Eid-el-Maulud to promote discourse and policies that will restore unity and calm frayed nerves particularly at this trying time in the checkered history of the country.
The party insists that it believes in the sense of brotherliness among Nigerians and urge that such should be promoted and guided jealously so as to ensure the stability and prosperity of Nigeria.
The PDP prayed for the country while wishing all Muslim faithful and indeed all citizens a glorious Eid-el-Maulud celebration.
