By Oluwaseun Sonde

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has said that the Holy Prophet stood for peace and unity during his lifetime, while urged Nigerian youths to remain law-abiding and resist the temptation to be used as tools of wanton destruction on this year’s Eid-el Maolud commemorating the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin on Wednesday, Abiodun urged all citizens to rededicate themselves to the teachings and exemplary life of the Holy Prophet, while congratulated Nigerians, particularly the Muslim faithful.

While wishing Nigerians a happy celebration, Abiodun further appealed to all and sundry to use this special occasion to pray fervently for the peaceful co-existence, stability and security of the nation.

He also urged Muslim faithful to continue to observe social distancing and other COVID-19 protocols, notwithstanding the flattening of the coronavirus curve in the State.
