Tunji-Ojo, in a statement signed by the Ministry’s permanent secretary, Dr. Oluwatoyin Akinlade, on Monday, admonished Nigerians, especially the youths to imbibe the spirit of love, patience, tolerance, and perseverance which are deep spiritual virtues and which Prophet Muhammad (SAW) exemplified, adding that doing so would guarantee peace, security and harmony in the country.

He urged Nigerians to also embrace the virtues of hard work and peaceful disposition to fellow humans, irrespective of faith, ideology, social class and ethnicity and to above all, join hands with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration in its effort to build a progressive and enviable Nation that all citizens will be proud of.

The minister wished all Muslim faithful a joyful celebration.
