President Bola Tinubu preached hope on Tuesday and called for a unified effort from all Nigerians, especially the Muslim Ummah, towards building the nation.

He felicitated the Muslim faithful as they marked the end of the Ramadan fast.

The Federal Government declared Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as official holidays to commemorate Eid-el-Fitr.

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, led by President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, declared Wednesday the first day of Shawwal.

In a statement released on Tuesday, President Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, conveyed Tinubu’s Eid message on Tuesday titled ‘President Tinubu greets the Muslim Ummah at Eid-el-Fitr, calls for a union of will and action to build the nation.’

“We are the sculptor, and Nigeria is the clay; we build it the way we desire,” Tinubu said in his maiden Eid-el-Fitr message as President.

Ngelale added that the President “felicitates the Muslim Ummah at Eid-el-Fitr, an auspicious occasion that signifies the end of Ramadan; a hallowed season that reflects total submission to God Almighty and His command of sacrifice and service to humankind.

“The President greets the Muslim faithful in Nigeria and all around the world, praying that their supplications and sacrifices this season and even after will receive the fitting rewards from Almighty Allah.”
