President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Muslims to strive for forgiveness and closeness to the noble life and teachings of the Prophet of Mohammed.

Felicitating the Muslim Ummah and Nigerians of all faiths on this year’s Eid el Maulud, the President said he craved for peace, unity and goodwill to the citizenry.

A statement by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, says the President also gives a snapshot of the increased activities of the Armed Forces, the Police Force, and intelligence agencies to effectively respond to the security challenges in the nation.

It calls on the media to address the tone, content, and standards of reporting of security and safety measures to reflect the current realities of the decline in criminalities across the country.

The statement advises that the reality of declining insecurity should replace the inaccurate narrative of rising insecurity in the country.

It says the President observes that increased co-operation and collaboration from the citizenry, coupled with reinvigorated, dynamic, and energised leadership and membership of security forces, the administration has scored overwhelming victories against terror, criminality, and economic sabotage.

The President says while there is more work to do, security personnel helping the nation to achieve this goal, desire our collective appreciation and encouragement to do even more.

President Buhari also wants road users to drive with care to avoid needless accidents.
