Tambuwal Urges Nigerians To Help Achieve National Rebirth
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has urged Nigerians to use the period of this year’s Eid-el-Maulud to collectively reflect on the life and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and apply same to achieve national rebirth and cohesion.
In a message issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said Prophet Muhammad (SAW) promoted the virtues of diligence, hard work, and commitment to set objectives, adding that when imbibed, these virtues can help propel the nation towards rapid growth and development.
He said Nigerians should use this year’s celebration to pray for the country, adding that they should also reflect on the ideals of peace, unity, harmony and selflessness taught by Islam in order to build a stable nation.
“With peace, tolerance and brotherly love, we can build a country of our dream. We should therefore eschew all forms of vices as we continue our march towards unity, development and self sustenance.”
While expressing optimism that the year 2015 will be a positive one for Nigeria, Tambuwal wished all Nigerians a happy and successful Maulud celebration.
