President Buhari Eid-el-Fitr message to Nigerians

"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.
On this happy occasion, it is my
strong 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.

As we celebrate another Eid El Fitr, I
admonish all patriotic Nigerians to
uphold these lessons and also
appreciate the numerous material
and human blessings God has endowed us with.
Let us 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.

On Monday this week, the Vice
President, the Speaker of the House
of Representatives and other
government officials joined me to host Iftar reception at the State
House with Nigerians of different
backgrounds including Internally
Displaced Persons (IDPs), artisans
and Physically-challenged persons.
Like I said during the reception, I want to once again appeal to those
of us who have the means, to
remember the millions of Nigerians
who are suffering deprivation
because of violence perpetrated by

I am not unaware of what Nigerians are going through and I want to use this medium to commend the amazing sacrifices of Nigerians in the face of the temporary economic and social challenges and also reassure Nigerians that my administration is working assiduously towards providing basic needs and other amenities.

Let me also use this opportunity to
reaffirm that we will not relent in the fight against corruption and we will
ensure that all appropriate and legal
measures are deplored to root out
this malaise.
I commend 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.

I also appeal 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

Happy Eid El Fitr celebration and May
the Almighty Allah continue to bless
our nation. Eid Mubarak!"

Muhammadu Buhari
