The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Tajudeen Abbas, has appealed to Nigerians, especially the Muslim community to use the occasion of the Eid-el-Kabir to pray for the success of the Tinubu administration.
In his Sallah message, the Speaker urges Nigerians to give the needed moral and spiritual support for all elected and appointed officials across the country.
While congratulating Muslims on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, the Speaker asked the citizens to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience to the Almighty Allah by making sacrifices towards the development and growth of Nigeria.
He stresses that the prosperity of the country is a joint task, calling on all citizens to remain united in the face of challenges.
According to him: “I congratulate Muslims, and Nigerians by extension, as we witness yet another Sallah celebration, especially after the successful conduct of the 2023 general election and the inauguration of a new President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as well as the 10th National Assembly.
“It is a time to thank Almighty Allah for His grace and mercy upon our nation. It is a time to reflect on the prospects and the brighter future ahead of the nation.
“It is also a time to pray for the success of our leaders, as they move to tackle the challenges facing the country, counting on the prayers and support of the people.
“Let us work together as a nation towards realizing the ‘Renewed Hope’ that Nigerians have massively voted for. May Almighty Allah bless Nigeria and Nigerians”.
