President Bola Tinubu has sent his heartfelt greetings to the Muslim community as they mark Eid-el-Kabir 2024, a joyous occasion that symbolizes devotion, piety, and selflessness and serves as a testament to the power of faith and spiritual surrender.

Tinubu said that the sacrifices and great expectations of Nigerian citizens will not come to nought.

He encouraged the Muslim community to contemplate the true significance of this holy day while offering prayers for Allah’s acceptance and blessings upon their devotion and acts of worship.

Ajuri Ngelale, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, released a statement containing the president’s message on Sunday.

The statement reads: “President Bola Tinubu celebrates with the Muslim Ummah on the joyous occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, an event that denotes sacrifice, faith, and obedience to the will of the Almighty.

“The President congratulates the Muslim faithful and prays that Allah accepts their supplications and acts of obedience. The President emphasizes that sacrifice and duty are essential ingredients to nation-building, noting that it takes collective purpose, will, and action to bring about great change.”

Tinubu also appealed to Muslims to offer heartfelt prayers for peace and unity in Nigeria as they gather with their loved ones to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, so that the country may be blessed with harmony and prosperity.

“President Tinubu calls on citizens to spare a prayer for the nation for continuous peace and stability while working according to purpose in promoting unity, peace, and progress.

“The President acknowledges the sacrifices that Nigerians have made in the past one year as his administration sets the nation on a firm pedestal of growth and development.

“President Tinubu affirms that the sacrifices and great expectations of citizens will not come to nought as already propitious outcomes are beginning to manifest with the economy strengthening and vibrancy returning to critical sectors.

“The President reassures Nigerians that his administration is prioritizing their physical, social, and economic security and will not relent on this noble endeavour,” he said.
