Nigeria: Yuguda Urges Muslims to Tolerate Each Other

Bauchi — Bauchi State governor Isa Yuguda has urged Muslims to always reflect on the birth of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in order to be good religious people who tolerate all irrespective of religious differences.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary Ishola Michael Adeyemi in commemoration with this year's Eid-El Maulud celebration to mark the birth of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), Yuguda reminded Muslims to live according to the teachings of Qur'an and Hadith of the Prophet.

Governor Yuguda noted that Prophet Muhammad lived a virtuous life worthy of emulation and stressed that Muslims should therefore endeavour to be virtuous in their day to day activities.
