Eid-el-Fitr: Tinubu, Aiyedatiwa, CAN felicitate muslims, call for unity

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has felicitated the Muslim Ummah at Eid-el-Fitr, an auspicious occasion that signifies the end of Ramadan.

The President, in a statement by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, on Tuesday, greeted 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.

As he emphasised during an iftar with Nigeria’s leaders of thought and conscience, President Tinubu appealed to all citizens to come together and rededicate themselves to the noble duty of building the nation, stating: “We are the sculptor, and Nigeria is the clay; we build it the way we desire.”

The President prayed that the lessons, blessings, and the joy of this season abide with us always while wishing Nigerians, happy Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.

Also, the Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, congratulated the Muslim community in the State as they celebrate Eid-el-fitr.

The Governor implored them to rekindle their commitment to unity and love for fellow residents.

Aiyedatiwa, in his message to the Muslim community, and signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan, prayed that this year’s Eid will bring blessings, peace and prosperity for all Muslim faithful, even as he expressed optimism for a sustained peaceful coexistence in the State.

“As the crescent moon appears, bringing to an end the holy month of Ramadan, I rejoice with our Muslim brothers and sisters on this year’s Eid-el-fitr and urge them to also use this celebration to reflect on the lessons of Ramadan.

“As we celebrate with you, may Allah shower His countless blessings upon you and your loved ones.

“Happy Eid-el-fitr celebration”, the Governor added.

While thanking Muslim clerics and leaders across the State for their support and prayers for the State, Aiyedatiwa promised to continue to provide conducive environment for religious harmony in the State.

Equally, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) extended warm felicitations to the Muslim faithful as they celebrate the joyous occasion of Eid-el-Fitri.

CAN said the Eid-el-Fitri celebration holds significant importance not only for the Muslim compatriots but for the entire nation.

The Christian apex body said it serves as a reminder of the values of compassion, humility, and generosity that form the foundation of our shared humanity.

A statement signed by the CAN President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, said, “In the midst of the diverse challenges facing our nation, it is imperative that we draw inspiration from the essence of Eid-el-Fitri to foster peace, harmony, and progress in our society.

“The lessons of Eid-el-Fitri resonate strongly in our quest for a more peaceful and prosperous Nigeria. As we witness the breaking of the fast and the exchange of goodwill among friends and neighbours, let us be reminded of the power of empathy, forgiveness, and understanding in building bridges across religious and cultural divides. It is a time to reflect on our common aspirations for a society where justice, equality, and respect for one another prevail.

“In this spirit, CAN calls on leaders at all levels of governance to embody moral rectitude and ethical leadership in their service to the nation. Leadership guided by integrity, accountability, and selflessness is essential in steering our country towards a path of sustainable development and unity. As we join our Muslim brothers and sisters in celebration, let us recommit ourselves to upholding the values of honesty, transparency, and equity in all our endeavours.
