President Muhammadu Buhari has  felicitated with the Muslim Ummah, Nigerians of all faith and the followers of Islam all over the world on the occasion of the Maulud-Un-Nabiyy, the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him.

In a message to mark the occasion, Tomorrow, a public holiday throughout the Federation, President Buhari said he was glad to send greetings of peace to them.

“I am delighted to send greetings of peace, unity and goodwill to the Muslim Ummah, fellow citizens and Muslims all over the world as they observe and celebrate Eid-ul- Maulud," he said.

The President urges Muslims to strive for "forgiveness and closeness to the noble life and teachings of the Prophet (SAW) whose birthday is being marked on this blessed day. On this auspicious occasion, I wish you all the blessings of today."

The President also  used the occasion to give a snapshot of the increased activities the Armed Forces, Police Force, and intelligence agencies have embarked upon to effectively respond to the security challenges in the nation.

He said the government fully expected these trends to continue, and called on the media to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting into security and safety measures.

" Time has come to revise the prefixes rising insecurity with “declining insecurity,” he added.

The President added that increased cooperation and collaboration from the citizenry, coupled with reinvigorated, dynamic, and energized police, security and military leadership is helping the administration score more victories against terror, criminality, and economic sabotage. The reality of declining insecurity should replace the inaccurate narrative of rising insecurity in the country.

"While there is work to do, the men and women in uniform who are helping the nation to achieve this goal, desire our collective appreciation and encouragement to do even more. The whole country and its mass communications systems have a duty in this regard," the President adds.

President Buhari concluded his message by appealing to road users to drive with care and avoid needless accidents.
