The All Progressives Congress (APC) celebrates with all Muslim faithful on the occasion of the Eid-ul-Maulud, the birthday of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (SAW).

This special day is very significant for all Muslims and, indeed, all lovers of peace, a noble virtue which embodies the life and times of the Prophet.

We urge all Muslims in particular and Nigerians in general to continue to live together in peace, be law abiding and eschew hate and bitterness to enable us build a country that we can all be proud of.

Our nation is currently going through multifarious challenges, which the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is working hard and succeeding in fixing one after the other. And only an atmosphere of peace and sacrifices and love for the fatherland, which Prophet Mohammed exemplified in his lifetime, can make this happen.
