Buhari Asks Nigerians To Rise Above Personal Interest on Eid-El-Kabir

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians across the country to rise above personal, group, sectarian and other interests. In his Sallah message to the nation on Monday, he asked the ci
tizens to promote harmony and tolerance in dealing with one another at all times. President Buhari also urged all Muslims to use the occasion for sober reflection and self-examination, as well as strive to be good ambassadors of their religion by upholding high moral values.

He reminded them that the felicitous occasion of Eid-ul-Adha is a remembrance of the submission of Prophet Ibrahim to Allah, his Creator, by which he taught the world the value of sacrifice in relating with one another, and when it comes to nation-building. “We must sacrifice for others and remember always those who are less fortunate than ourselves,” the President declared in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu.

He described Islam as a major factor in influencing human behaviour towards good conduct and actions. President Buhari, however, regretted that selfishness, greed and corruption have overwhelmed human souls to the extent that people abandon their religious beliefs in pursuit of their greed.
