The Eid-el-Maulud celebration is to mark the birth of prophet Muhammed. According to Wikipedia, Eid-el-Maulud is the observance of the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad which is commemorated in Rabi' al-awwal the third month in the Islamic calendar. 12th Rabi' al-awwal is the accepted date among most of the Sunni scholars, while Shi'a scholars regard 17th Rabi' al-awwal as the accepted date.
The history of this celebration goes back to the early days of Islam when some of the Tabi'un began to hold sessions in which poetry and songs composed to honour Muhammad were recited and sung to the crowds. Read president Muhammadu Buhari speech below.
