Niger State, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, has advised Muslims across the nation to rise against all those promoting violence and insecurity in Nigeria.
The Governor gave this advice in a message to commemorate the Eid El Maulud signed by his Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mrs Mary Noel Berje in Minna.
He regretted the attitude of miscreants who use the religion of Islam as facade to perpetrate heinous crime.
Bello, however, insisted that only genuine love and an ending social equilibrium can frustrate the spread of violent ideology in the society.
The statement noted, “humanity is fast losing its essence due to obvious disregard to religious teachings and practice. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and indeed Islam preaches peace tolerance unity and togetherness”.
The Governor also urged the Muslim faithfuls to imbibe the virtues of Prophet Muhammad that teaches humility perseverance honesty and love to move the country forward.
He added that his administration will continue to execute people oriented projects in Niger state to achieve the desired objective.
