“I am elated with joy to once again join you, my Muslim brothers and sisters across the country and beyond, to celebrate this year’s Eid-el-fitr, which marks completion of the Holy Month of Ramadan.
As you joyfully conclude the 2021 Holy Month of Ramadan, I enjoin you, my beloved faithfuls of Islam, to use this period to preach peaceful coexistence and pray for the unity of Nigeria. This is because we will not have luxury to celebrate and merry without a peaceful society.
I also urge abstinence from every from of deeds and immorality that negates the tenets of Islam and displeases the Almighty Creator.
