The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Bola Tinubu and other Nigerians holding “sensitive” positions to promote peace and stability.
“They should imbibe the fear of God in line with the teachings of the Holy Prophet, as this is the only way to guarantee peace and stability in the polity,” said the PDP in a statement marking the Eid-el-Maulud.
The PDP added, “Such officials must note that positions are given by the Almighty Allah and that all their actions will be accounted for before Him. The PDP felicitates with Nigerians and wishes them a happy Eid-el Maulud celebration.”
The statement was issued on Wednesday by its spokesman, Debo Ologunagba.
“Eid-el Maulud, the celebration of the birth of Holy Prophet Mohammed (SAW), offers humanity an anchor in God’s love and willingness to guide mankind through obedience to His Will, righteousness, peace and eternal redemption,” the PDP statement added.
It called on Nigerians, especially those holding sensitive public offices and whose decisions were central to the entrenchment of justice, equity, and the rule of law in the nation, to use the occasion to imbibe the fear of God.
