In a statement signed and issued by Ola Awoniyi, Special Adviser to President of the Senate on media, Lawan said the birthday of the Holy Prophet should be an occasion for renewal of commitment to ideals that will enhance peace and prosperity in Nigeria.

He charged Muslims in particular to always emulate the virtues of Prophet Muhammad which include honesty, love for others and peaceful co-existence.

“Prophet Muhammad preached and lived for peace and that is the virtue expected of every Muslim, particularly in a diverse society such as ours.

“This year’s occasion is another opportunity to further thank the Almighty Allah for his continued guidance and intervention in the challenges in our society,” Lawan said.

The Senate President said the ninth National Assembly will continue to do its utmost to make a positive impact in the lives of Nigerians through appropriate legislations.
