Tinubu Urges Nigerians to Embrace Sacrifice, Love, and Gratitude

President Bola Tinubu has called on Nigerians to embrace the virtues of sacrifice, love, and gratitude, emphasizing their importance in nation-building.
Speaking after observing the Eid-el Adha prayers at Dodan Barracks in Lagos, Tinubu highlighted the necessity of these values to achieve the aspirations of Nigeria’s founding fathers.
“Being a good citizen comes with responsibility. As citizens, what do you do to be a committed member of our society? Go and sacrifice. Love your country, love your neighbours, share what you have with one another, and be thankful to Almighty God. That’s all,” Tinubu said.
The President’s message arrives amidst economic challenges, with the National Bureau of Statistics reporting an annual inflation rate of 33.95% in May 2024.
Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, also addressed worshippers, urging perseverance and patience. He emphasized the significance of Eid-el-Adha, symbolizing sacrifice and endurance, and appealed for sustained peace and harmony in Nigeria.
Chief Imam of Lagos, Sheikh Suleiman Abou-Nolla, delivered the Eid-el-Adha message, urging the importance of fearing God and living in submission to Allah. He referenced the sacrifices of historical Nigerian leaders like Sir Ahmadu Bello, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, and Moshood Abiola, advocating for the continuation of their legacy for the nation’s growth.
Dignitaries at the event included Chief of Staff Femi Gbajabiamila, Principal Private Secretary Hakeem Muri-Okunola, former Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola, Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, and Senator Gbenga Ashafa.
