He charged all Nigerians to be patriotic and courageous, adding that being law abiding citizens through the spirit of love, self-discipline, tolerance and kindness as taught by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him), the battle against resurging insecurity and activities of criminal element in Nigeria will be extinguished.

“I know these are perilous times owing to covid-19 which have grounded festivities and normal gatherings since 2020 till date, but as I join you to celebrate this year’s Eid-il-Fitr, I enjoin you to always remember to pray for Nigeria”.

Prince Magboh continued, “I believe that the teachings of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) if put to practice, we will have no reasons to fight nor cause to do evil against a fellow brethren and peace will reign” he emphasized.
