The South-East zonal chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MCBAN), Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, has called on its members across the country to use the occasion of Eid-El-Maulud to pray for continued peace and unity with their host communities.
In a statement made available to journalists in Awka, Siddiki observed that the highest respect Muslims all over the world could do in remembrance of Prophet Muhammad is to emulate his lifestyle of non-violence, peaceful disposition as well as his remarkable virtues of patience and love for one another.
“Prophet Muhammad was a paragon of peace, humility and justice for all, and as we honour him today, let us follow his examples in words and actions by promoting tolerance, love, harmony and peaceful coexistence in the country.
“We have no country like ours. So it’s pertinent for all Nigerians irrespective of religious background to live in peace with one another,” he said.
The MCBAN chairman hailed his host communities, South-East governors, traditional rulers and other community leaders for the support they have given to the association in the zone saying that his leadership will continue to collaborate with security agencies in the five eastern states of Anambra, Abia, Enugu, Imo and Ebonyi to guarantee the safety of lives and property.
