Eid-el-Kabir: President Tinubu Preaches Love And Charity To The Vulnerable


President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Sunday, June 16, 2024, called on Nigerians to show more love, care for their neighbours and extend charity to all in the spirit of Eid-el-Kabir.

This was how he said that some level of sacrifice will be required to move the nation forward, stressing that sacrifice is required of a good citizen.

President Tinubu, who stated these while speaking with journalists shortly after Eid-el-Kabir prayers in Lagos, said that citizenship comes with responsibilities

He said; “We have been told by the Chief Imam how we can follow the path of sacrifice. As citizens, what do we need to do to be committed members of our society? Yes, that is sacrifice; loving your country. Loving your neighbours. Sharing what you have with each other. And to always be thankful to Almighty God”.

In his sermon, the Chief Imam of Lagos State, Sheikh Suleiman Oluwatoyin Abou-Nolla, who led the prayers, reiterated the need for more love, sacrifice and care for the poor and the vulnerable.

Sheikh Abou-Nolla said; “Our leaders like the late Sir Ahmadu Bello, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, Funmilayo Ransome Kuti, to mention a few, sacrificed their knowledge, wealth, sweat, and even life, to the growth and development of the country we call ours today.

“All their activities and actions were geared towards nation-building. We must therefore ensure that their sacrifices are not in vain.

“It is incumbent on us to follow their footsteps to ensure that this nation, Nigeria, continues to grow in leaps and bounds,” he said.

A statement by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said the Chief Imam of Lagos urged citizens to pray that God Almighty grant the President the strength and wisdom to deliver on his vision for a better and prosperous nation.
