Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has called on Muslims in the state to promote religious tolerance and peaceful co-existence on the occasion of Eid-el-Maulud.
The governor made the call on Wednesday in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.
Mr Wike assured that his administration would continue to promote religious tolerance among residents of the state.
He, therefore, advised Muslim faithful to imbibe the virtues of love, peace, communal living and honesty, which were qualities of Prophet Mohammed.
The governor, while wishing Muslim faithful a wonderful Eid-el-Maulud, urged them to always pray for the government and people of the state.
