EID-EL FITR: Your sacrifices for me won’t be in vain — Buhari

 Ahead of the Sallah holidays, President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday vowed to bring terrorists, kidnappers and other bandits fueling insecurity in the country to justice, saying their days were numbered.

This came as former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate in the last general elections, Atiku Abubakar, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, state governors, Christians Association of Nigeria, CAN and telecommunications operator, Globacom, felicitated with Nigerian Muslims over a successful Ramadan.

The President in an Eid-El Fitr message by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu also commiserated with victims of terrorism, kidnapping and banditry in the country.

He reassured Nigerians that under no circumstances would criminals and mass murderers be allowed to hold the country to ransom, saying “their days are numbered because this administration will pursue them relentlessly and bring them to justice.” He expressed satisfaction at the conduct of peaceful elections in Nigeria, despite what he called “doomsday predictions of social disharmony.”

 The President in the Sallah message to Nigerians to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fasting season, commended the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for a good job despite the initial difficulties and praised Nigerian voters for their tenacity and strong faith in the democratic process.

According to him, “Before the 2019 general elections, prophets of doom didn’t give the country a chance to conduct peaceful elections. Despite these fears, the country overcame its political challenges.

For abandoning their businesses in order to vote, the voters had demonstrated great patriotism in coming out to exercise their civic duty.

Let me use this opportunity once again to reassure all Nigerians that your sacrifices in voting for me won’t be in vain. I will ensure the ordinary voters feel the positive impact of government.”

Turning to the lessons of the Ramadan, the President urged Muslims to always put humanity before personal interests, adding “the Ramadan period is meant to reinforce us spiritually, therefore, we should use religion as an inspiration to do good at all times.

The virtues of the Ramadan should be sustained beyond the celebration. Going back to bad ways after the Ramadan might defeat the essence of the message and lessons the fasting period was supposed to inculcate in the hearts and minds of the Muslim faithful.”
