He recalled Prophet Ibrahim’s offering his only son Ismail as sacrifice to Allah, saying that the best way “by which we can demonstrate this example is in how we conduct ourselves in relation to our fellow citizens and in our duties to our beloved country. “We must imbibe and manifest those values inherent in Prophet Ibrahim’s life, namely; complete devotion to Allah, tolerance, patience, perseverance, selflessness, love and compassion.

In the Sallah message which he personally signed, President Tinubu, called on Nigerians to immerse themselves in the joy of this moment and celebrate, and that they should remember those who may not be as fortunate like them.
“Coming as the end of religious activities spanning the first ten days of the Islamic Month of Dhul Hijjah, Eid-el-Kabir enjoins us as Muslims to show mercy and compassion to our fellow humans.
“Eid-el-Kabir is a festival of sacrifice and total obedience to Allah as exemplified in the exceptional action of Prophet Ibrahim.”
