Eid-el-Fitr: Buhari charges Nigerians on sacrifice for nation building

The President, Muhammadu Buhari, has charged Nigerians on key lessons of self-denial and sacrifice as muslims mark the 2015 Eid-el-Fitr celebrations, reports ITRealms.

“I greet and felicitate with you all, especially our citizens of the Islamic faith on this auspicious occasion of the 2015 Eid-el-Fitr celebrations,” he said.

According to a press statement made available to ITRealms by the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, quoted Mr. President as congratulating all those who have successfully completed the Ramadan fast in keeping with the muslim injunction of the Creator.

Buhari noted that although faithfuls have come to the end of this year’s month of Ramadan, he believes that a greater acceptance by Nigerians of its key lessons of self-denial and sacrifice will serve the country well as the nation strives to overcome present challenges, “undo the damage done by years of bad governance and accelerate the pace of national development.”

He reviewed the dire circumstances and the many missed opportunities of the past, some commentators and observers have said that this is Nigeria’s last chance to get its act together and finally begin to fulfill its God-given potential for greatness.

“I certainly believe that now, more than ever before, our country needs greater self-denial, sacrifice and patriotism from all of its citizens, if we are to quickly recover from our numerous problems and start moving in a positive direction,” he charges.

This current period offers Nigeria a great opportunity to break from the vicious triangle of insecurity, corruption and under-development, hence Nigerians must collectively resolve to seize this opportunity and unite to confront the problems.

“I remain wholly committed to giving the required leadership towards undoing the wrongs of the past, ensuring that Nigeria truly begins to unlock its great potential and that the benefits of our immense national resources are shared and enjoyed by all, not just by successive cabals of corrupt leaders and their cronies.

“I was very aware of your high expectations when I assumed office and I reassure you, my fellow citizens, that since my inauguration on the 29th of May this year, I have been working with utmost dedication to meticulously plan and tackle the many national challenges which we identified and promised to resolve,” he urged.
