Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has sent greetings to Muslims in the state and across the world as they mark the occasion of the Maulud Nabbiy, the birthday of Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, enjoined the Muslim faithful to use the opportunity of this celebration to reflect on the lessons and teachings of the Prophet, whom he said, led a life of service to Allah and humanity.
Oyetola also urged them to emulate Prophet Muhammad’s shining virtues of love, compassion, tolerance and promotion of peaceful co-existence, noting that if they do this, the society will be much better.
He also called on Muslims in Osun and all Nigerians to use this occasion to pray for the peace, stability, progress and development of Osun in particular and the country in general.
