President Buhari sends heart warming Sallah message to Nigerians

President Buhari sends heart warming Sallah message to Nigerians

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to rise above
personal, group, sectarian and other interests, and promote harmony and
tolerance in dealing with one another at all times.

In a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media
& Publicity, Garba Shehu on Monday, Buhari called on all Muslims to
use the occasion for sober reflection and self-examination, and strive
to be good ambassadors of their religion by upholding high moral values.

He reminded Muslims that this felicitous occasion of Eid-ul-Adha is a
remembrance of the submission of Prophet Ibrahim Allaihis-Salam to
Allah, his Creator, by which he taught the world the value of sacrifice
in relating with one another.

He said when it comes to nation-building, “We must sacrifice for
others and remember always those who are less fortunate than ourselves,”
the President declared.

He further explained that religion was a major factor in influencing human behaviour towards good conduct and actions.

He said he regretted that selfishness, greed and corruption have
overwhelmed human souls to the extent that people abandon their
religious beliefs in pursuit of their greed.

The President stressed that fighting corruption was a task that must
be done in order to protect the larger interests of the ordinary
Nigerians who are the worst victims of diseases, poverty, malnutrition
and other afflictions.

He stated that surrendering to corruption was not an option because it destroys society and progress of nations.

“Even if some people hate you for fighting corruption, you should not
chicken out from the task as a leader because doing so is a betrayal of
public trust.”

On the current economic challenges facing Nigerians, Buhari reassured
that such were temporary because the welfare of the people was the main
thrust of the change agenda of his administration.

Buhari cited the many initiatives of the administration under the
Social Investment Programme (SIP) among which was the recent decision to
distribute recovered stolen funds to the poor against the past
practices of re-looting such funds by some people in authority.
