As Nigerians join their counterparts from across the world to celebrate the Muslim Eid-el-Kabir festival, President Bola Tinubu has asked citizens to face their future with renewed hope and vigour.
In a statement yesterday, the President said Nigerians should have the confidence that tomorrow shall be better and brighter.
According to the Islamic faith, Eid-el-Kabir is a festival of sacrifice and total obedience to Allah as exemplified in the exceptional action of Prophet Ibrahim.
In his message, President 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 a sacrifice to Allah.
He also added that Nigerians must imbibe and manifest the values of complete devotion to Allah through tolerance, patience, perseverance, selflessness, love and compassion.
The President returned to the country yesterday from his trip to France and a brief stopover in the UK.
