By Isa Mubaraq: 

President Bola Tinubu, in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, called upon Nigerians to maintain a spirit of mercy and compassion towards each other as they celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festivities, joining the global commemoration.

The president also emphasized the importance of expressing gratitude to God for the opportunity to observe another Eid.

“As we immerse ourselves in the joy of this moment and celebrate, let us remember those who may not be as fortunate like us.

“Coming as the end of religious activities spanning the first 10 days of the Islamic Month of Dhul Hijjah, Eid-el-Kabir enjoins us as Muslims to show mercy and compassion to our fellow humans.

“Eid-el-Kabir is a festival of sacrifice and total obedience to Allah as exemplified in the exceptional action of Prophet Ibrahim,” he said.

Tinubu added that “there is no greater sense of duty ever recorded in history outside the ennobling example of Prophet Ibrahim in offering his only son, Ismail, as sacrifice to Allah.

“The best way by which we can demonstrate this example is in how we conduct ourselves in relation to our fellow citizens and in our duties to our beloved country.

“We must imbibe and manifest those values inherent in Prophet Ibrahim’s life, namely; complete devotion to Allah, tolerance, patience, perseverance, selflessness, love and compassion.”

The president encouraged Nigerians to utilize this period to amplify acts of goodness by exhibiting kindness and extending assistance to the less fortunate and vulnerable within their communities. He emphasized that such qualities would exemplify the values and principles of the Islamic faith.

“At the moment, our country is going through some challenges, especially with our struggling economy and simmering security challenges. While I acknowledge all of these, I want to assure you that they are not insurmountable.

“I am working day and night with my team, fleshing out solutions. We have started with the decisions taken so far; to reform our economy and remove all impediments to growth.

“As we embrace the present challenges, we must face the future with vigour and renewed hope with the confidence that our tomorrow shall be better and brighter,” he said.

The president wished all Nigerians a happy Sallah celebration.
