Eid-el-Fitr: Tinubu felicitates Muslims, vows to serve with honour, dignity

Bola Tinubu

The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has again promised to serve Nigerians with honour and dignitary after his inauguration on May 29, 2023.

Tinubu, who vowed not to fail Nigerians, declared that he would “walk” with all the citizens for the development of the country.

The President-elect said this via his Eid-el-Fitr message to Muslims, a copy of which was made available to The Conclave on Thursday, April 20.

The former governor of Lagos State, who urged Nigerians to love one another, enjoined the citizens to constantly seek to become a better version of themselves in patriotism, dedication to duty, and honesty.

He said: Beyond the self-abnegation and pious living that the fasting period imposed on us, the spiritual excercise we just concluded has also helped us to improve on our moral character, refine our minds in pursuit of higher ideals for which there should be no turning back.

“At the heart of our faith and a major demand on all faithful is the requirement to commit ourselves to wholesome living. This entails love for one another, love for fellow humans regardless of creed, region and ethnicity, love for our communities and love for country.

“To love one another, have compassion, empathy and love our beloved country means we must become better citizens in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammed.

“We must constantly seek to become a better version of ourselves in patriotism, dedication to duty and honesty. We must also never be weary of doing what is right, fair, and just to all.

“We are at the dawn of a Renewed Hope for a better, greater and a more prosperous Nigeria and I stand ready to walk with all Nigerians, young and old, male and female, with this opportunity to serve you in honour and dignity. This is a commitment that I have made and one in which we cannot afford to fail.

“I wish all Muslims in Nigeria and beyond happy Sallah celebration,” Tinubu stated.
