    Pray for Buhari, Tinubu urges in Eid message

    Former governor of Lago State, Bola Tinubu, has asked Muslims to remember the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), the governors and other leaders in their prayers so that they could continue to confront and surmount the challenges facing the country.

    “By so doing, together we can enjoy the benefits of a better Nigeria,” he stated in his Eid-el-Kabir message to the nation.

    He also urged them to dedicate themselves to greater adherence and obedience to the compassionate and spiritually nourishing commands of Almighty Allah.

    Tinubu, in a statement on Monday in Lagos, urged the people not to forget the poor and vulnerable among them.

    He encouraged the Muslim faithful never to forget the reason for Eid-el-Kabir and to reach out to give solace and succour to those unable to help themselves

    “I extend my warmest greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and around the world.

    “We give utmost gratitude to Almighty Allah SWT for His munificent blessings and abiding love for all mankind.

    “To be a good Muslim is to be a caring and generous human being therefore, show brotherly concern and compassion to all,” he said.

    Tinubu, one of the leaders of All Progressive Congress, said that the challenges faced as a nation called upon all to adhere even more closely to Allah’s commands.

    He said by so doing, Nigerians may overcome the challenges and continue to build the just and prosperous society destined for all.

    He called on Nigerians to remember President Muhammadu Buhari, the governors and other leaders in their prayers so that they could continue to confront and surmount the challenges facing the country.

    “By so doing, together we can enjoy the benefits of a better Nigeria.”

    “This Eid, we must, therefore, beseech Almighty Allah to protect the weak, feed the poor and give us the courage, wisdom to subdue and defeat those who would do violence and destruction to the innocent.

    “We pray for our gallant soldiers and other security agents confronting these agents of evil people.

    “We pray for the unity and stability of this country.

    “Once again, I wish Muslims and indeed all Nigerians a happy Eid-el-Kabir,” Tinubu said.
