Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has felicitated with the Muslim faithful in the state on the occasion of 2020 Mawlud Nabiyy, while charging them to emulate Prophet Muhammad’s virtues.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as congratulating Muslim faithful in the state and Nigeria on witnessing the 2020 Eidul-Mawlid.
The governor charged them to imbibe the spirit of love, patience, and perseverance, which according to him, are virtues of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), adding that this will guarantee peace and security in the state and the country as a whole.
He enjoined Muslims to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran in Chapter 4 Verse 59, which says:
“O you who believe! Obey God and obey the Messenger, and those from among you who are vested with authority; and if you are to dispute among yourselves about anything, refer it to God and the Messenger, if indeed you believe in God and the Last Day. This is the best (for you), and fairest in the end.”
