Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has urged all Nigerians to uphold the tenets of peaceful coexistence and respect for all faith so as to build a united and peaceful nation where everybody would feel free and safe.

In a message to commemorate this year's Maulud celebration issued in Sokoto by his spokesman, Imam Imam, on Friday, Tambuwal said the celebration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) should renew "our faith and bond of unity as one people, one nation, our diversities notwithstanding."

He said same way that the birth of the Prophet in Mecca ushered in a new dawn for humanity, Nigerians should view the occasion of this year's Maulud Nabiyyi as an opportunity for a new beginning for the country.

"I believe that we will make progress towards the realisation of our shared vision of a strong, united and prosperous nation if our people imbibe the Prophet's lessons of peace, tolerance, honesty, selflessness, sincerity, justice, equity and peaceful co-existence with others, including fairness to all," the Governor said.

He appealed to them not to relent in their prayers for the nation and its leaders.
