The Director of Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of Interior, Mohammed Manga disclosed this in a statement issued Thursday in Abuja on behalf of the Minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
The Minister on behalf of the Federal Government, called on muslims to replicate the life of kindness, love, tolerance, peace and good neighbourliness, as exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).
The Minister advised Nigerians to see themselves as a single entity and thus learn to tolerate one another despite their ethnic and religious differences.
Aregbesola further assured Nigerians that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is fully committed to battling the scourge of COVID-19 with the cooperation of all Nigerians.
He advised Nigerians to take responsibility against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and also stay safe by observing physical and social distancing, personal and respiratory hygiene, as well as other regulations issued by relevant authorities.
