The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has declared that there is need to adhere more to the commands of Allah in order to overcome the challenges facing the nation.
Tinubu made the declaration on Monday in his Eid-el-Kabir message to muslims.
His words: “The challenges that we face as a nation call upon us to adhere even more closely to Allah’s commands so that we may overcome these challenges and continue to build the just and prosperous society destined for us.”
He warned that as muslims celebrate, they should not forget the reason for Eid-el- Kabir.
“We commemorate an act of complete faith in Allah and His instructions unto us. Thus, let’s celebrate but may we also dedicate ourselves to greater adherence and obedience to the compassionate and spiritually nourishing commands of Almighty Allah.”
He said further: “Celebrate yes, but let us not forget the poor and vulnerable among us. Reach out to give solace and succour to those unable to help themselves. Show brotherly concern and compassion to all. To be a good Muslim is to be a caring and generous human being. The challenges that we face as a nation call upon us to adhere even more closely to Allah’s commands so that we may overcome these challenges and continue to build the just and prosperous society destined for us.
“This Eid, we must, therefore, beseech Almighty Allah to protect the weak, feed the poor and give us the courage and 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. Let us also remember President Muhammadu Buhari, our governors and other leaders in our prayers so that they can continue to confront and surmount the challenges facing this country so that together we can enjoy the benefits of a better Nigeria.”
