Eid-Maulud: Gov Dickson Task Muslims On Love, Forgiveness, Peaceful Co-existence

The Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson  has urged Muslims across the country to imbibe the positive attributes of the Prophet, such as love, forgiveness and merciful to all mankind.

In his message to Muslim Faithful on the occasion of Ed el Maulud, Governor Dickson also urged them to continually preach peace and mutual co-existence among different religious groups in the country.

The governor implored Muslims to dwell less and de-emphasise those issues that tend to polarize the nation, pointing out that most of the differences being experienced are as a result of lack of understanding and the selfish tendencies of a few persons.


His words: “In your mosques and meetings continue to preach the gospel of unity, tolerance and peaceful co-existence because every part of this country needs the other part to move forward.  And the greatness of the country is our size, our population and diversity”.

While felicitating with the Muslims, Governor Dickson thanked them for their continued prayers and support for the policies and programmes of his administration, stressing that, as the leader of the State, he will always carry them along in the schemes of things.

He also appreciated them for their peaceful conduct, noting that his administration’s commitment to the maintenance of peace and security as well as the efforts of security agencies have culminated in making Bayelsa one of the most peaceful states in the country.
