President Bola Tinubu says he is working day and night with his appointees to find a lasting solution to the various challenges bewildering Nigeria.
Tinubu, who said the challenges are not insurmountable, noted that he has started fleshing out solutions with the reform of Nigeria’s economy.
He said this in his Eid-el-Kabir message to Nigerians on Tuesday, June 27, 2023.
The president, who described Eid-el-Kabir as a festival of sacrifice and total obedience to Allah, enjoined Muslims in the country to continue to show mercy and compassion to their fellow citizens.
Tinubu said: “There is no greater sense of duty ever recorded in history outside the ennobling example of Prophet Ibrahim in offering his only son Ismail as sacrifice to Allah.
“The best way by which we can demonstrate this example is in how we conduct ourselves in relation to our fellow citizens and in our duties to our beloved country. We must imbibe and manifest those values inherent in Prophet Ibrahim’s life, namely; complete devotion to Allah, tolerance, patience, perseverance, selflessness, love, and compassion.
“This season, let us endeavour to multiply good deeds with our kindness to our fellow Muslims and others by helping and supporting the weak and vulnerable in our communities. By so doing, we showcase the values and virtues of our faith.
“At the moment, our country is going through some challenges, especially with our struggling economy and simmering security challenges. While I acknowledge all of these, I want to assure you that they are not insurmountable.
“I am working day and night with my team, fleshing out solutions. We have started with the decisions taken so far, to reform our economy and remove all impediments to growth.
“As we embrace the present challenges, we must face the future with vigour and Renewed Hope with the confidence that our tomorrow shall be better and brighter.”
