Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he won’t rest until he brings relief to Nigerians.
He made this known to the public in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, on Friday, July 8th.
In his Eid-el Kabir message to Nigerian Muslims and other citizens, Buhari expressed hope that this Eid would be a source of blessing, peace, prosperity, and safety for all Nigerians, stressing coexistence and stability will prevail in the country.
He said, “I am quite aware of the difficulties people are facing and working to resolve them.”
“Religion shouldn’t just be used as a mere badge of identity, but as a motivator for doing good for our country and humanity.
“The exploitation of the people by traders and the stealing of public funds by civil servants and other holders of public trust is a reflection of the abandonment of the teachings of our religions.
“Our society is a bundle of contradictions. People display external religiosity without fear of God; they make life difficult for others; money becomes their god; leaders abandon their oaths of office by taking money meant for the welfare of the people and diverting it to their private pockets.”
