Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has enjoined Muslims worldwide to use the occasion of Eid-el-Maulud as a period of rejuvenation and revaluation of love and peaceful coexistence among all human beings, noting that it is a period of soul-searching and thanksgiving.
The governor stated this in a press release through his Special Assistant (Media & Strategy), Chooks Oko.
According to Umahi, “It is the marking of the birthday of a most great personality that stands for love, peace and tolerance and as such should be a period for us to ask ourselves if we are living according to his dictates.
As you celebrate, do so in happiness with a resolve to be closer to the Almighty in words and deeds”
He wished them unmitigated celebrations in strict adherence to the Holy book.
