The 2023 Abia State PDP governorship candidate, Chief Okey Ahiwe has felicitated with Muslim faithful across Nigeria, particularly in Abia State, on the commemoration of this year’s Eid-el-Maulud.

Chief Ahiwe while conveying his message of brotherhood, noted that Muslim faithful in Abia have over the years exemplified the iconic peace of Islam as established by Prophet Mohammed (SAW), and urged them to continue to be ambassadors of peace and tolerance in the State.

In his words, “I am glad to join our Muslim brothers and sisters across Nigeria, especially in Abia State, to mark this year’s Eid-el-Maulud celebrations. I must commend the Muslim Community in Abia who have, over the years, demonstrated exemplary commitment to sustaining peaceful coexistence with non-Muslims, particularly Christians with whom they have shared mutually beneficial social and entrepreneurial partnerships. This is in line with the cannons of the Islamic religion as established by Prophet Mohmmed (SAW), and I urge them to uphold the tradition of peace without which there can be no meaningful development or progress.”

While wishing all Muslims the abundant blessings of Allah, Chief Ahiwe called on Muslim leaders across the country, particularly in Abia, to continue to educate their followers on the need for everyone to join efforts to make Nigeria an oasis of peace and security for the present and future generations.
