Muslims in the country, particularly in Ogun State have been charged to use the occasion of Maulud Nabiyyi being celebrated this Wednesday to reflect on the challenges confronting the nation with a view to joining hands with other Nigerians in finding solutions to the numerous challenges.

The State Muslim Council gave the charge in a statement by  its Secretary- General, Alhaji Kamaldeen Akintunde made available to Edu-Biznews on Tuesday, to commemorate the celebration   this Wednesday, which has been declared by the Federal Government as public holiday for Muslims in the country to join their couter part in the rest of the world for this   year's Maulud Nabiyyi 

It enjoined Muslim faithful to embrace the tenets and teachings of their faith as practised by Prophet Muhammad and apply them to promote the advancement of man and the society.

In noting that the Maulud Nabiyyi this year has turned in a little ahead  of the country's 63rd Independence Anniversary, the OMC called for sacrifice on the part of all Nigerians at moving the country forward.

The council in the statement, implored the Nigerian citizens to be patient while also showing understanding with the government as it is taking sustainable initiative that will engender an enduring peace and social- economic transformation of the country.
