President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians to show tolerance to one another irrespective of their differences.

In his Eid-el-Fitr message to the nation, the President appealed to Nigerians to “learn to show gratitude, respect and tolerance to one other, irrespective of our religion, tribe, language and political leanings, as we forge ahead to build on our strengths and opportunities to make Nigeria great again.”

He expressed the belief that all true followers of Islam have been rejuvenated on the true meaning and essence of life and through the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), “we have learnt to imbibe the virtues of piety, sacrifice, love, self-denial and good conduct in our daily relationship with one another.”

He admonished all patriotic Nigerians to uphold these lessons and also appreciate the numerous material and human blessings God has endowed the country with.

President Buhari disclosed that he is not unaware of what Nigerians are going through and used the occasion to commend what he described as “the amazing sacrifices of Nigerians in the face of the temporary economic and social challenges” and also reassure that his administration is working assiduously towards providing basic needs and other amenities.

He also used the opportunity to reaffirm that his administration will not relent in the fight against corruption but will rather ensure that all appropriate and legal measures are deplored to root out this malaise.

He commended the Armed Forces and security agencies for the gains recorded in the fight against terrorists and the rescue of hostages in the North East part of the country and also appealed for the support, understanding and patience of all Nigerians and “our international partners as we explore the fastest means to end the economic sabotage in the Niger Delta and amicably resolve the conflicts within the region. I promise you all better days ahead even as we remain grateful for your unflinching support to our administration.

“I felicitate with all Nigerians, especially the Muslim Ummah, on the occasion of this year’s Eid El Fitr, which marks the completion of the Ramadan fast.

“I congratulate Muslims in Nigeria and around the world on the successful completion of this month-long spiritual journey of fasting, prayer and almsgiving in obedience to the Divine Command.

“I sincerely pray that the Almighty Allah will reward our sacrifices with increased blessing and a more prosperous future,” Buhari said.
