Tinubu Media Office – As we celebrate Eid-el-Fitri, I hereby congratulate all Muslim faithfuls for enduring the rigours of fasting and hope the lessons of the last one month will forever remain in our hearts. The teachings of the Prophet (SAW) will not stand against us on the day of judgement. Amin.
We must not give up on Nigeria particularly in the face of our current security and political challenges. We shall overcome if we all remain steadfast in our patriotism and prayers. We must at all times imbibe the spirit of unity, no matter our religious or political affiliation or ethnic grouping. Nigeria belongs to us all and all must come together to defend our togetherness. Those that insist that they are more patriotic than other Nigerians based on different political or religious affiliations must desist. They do this country great harm by seeking to exploit our present circumstances to gain political space and advantage. At the end of it all, no one is greater than Nigeria as we will guide our unity with a singularity of purpose and superiority of vision.
I call on all well-meaning Nigerians of all faiths to seek the face of God at this most trying of times. Insurgency is an unwanted and dangerous guest in our midst; we must be resolute and consistent in confronting it. We can only do this with a united front.
May Allah’s blessings and peace be unto us all.
