President Bola Tinubu has called on Nigerians to demonstrate compassion towards their neighbors and extend acts of charity to all during the Eid-el-Kabir festivities.

Speaking to journalists after participating in Eid-el-Kabir prayers in Lagos on Sunday, President Tinubu emphasized the importance of sacrifice in advancing the nation.

“We have been reminded by the Chief Imam about the essence of sacrifice—what it means to be a responsible citizen. Citizenship comes with duties. As citizens, how do we contribute to our society? It involves sacrifice: loving our country, caring for our neighbors, sharing our blessings with one another, and always expressing gratitude to the Almighty,” President Tinubu stated.

Earlier during his sermon, Sheikh Suleiman Oluwatoyin Abou-Nolla, the Chief Imam of Lagos State who led the prayers, echoed the call for increased love, sacrifice, and support for the less privileged.

“Our leaders like the late Sir Ahmadu Bello, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, among others, sacrificed their knowledge, wealth, sweat, and even their lives for the growth and development of our nation, Nigeria. Their endeavors were aimed at nation-building,” Sheikh Abou-Nolla emphasized.

He urged Nigerians to ensure that the sacrifices made by these leaders were not in vain and called for citizens to follow in their footsteps to propel Nigeria forward in progress and prosperity.

The Chief Imam also led prayers, imploring Almighty God to grant President Tinubu strength and wisdom to actualize his vision for a better and more prosperous nation.

As Nigerians celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, the messages of sacrifice, compassion, and unity conveyed by President Tinubu and the Chief Imam resonate as guiding principles for national cohesion and development.
