Eid-el-Fitr: President Buhari Sends Message From London, Warns Against Reckless Statements

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday urged Nigerians to live in peace and avoid making reckless statements.

A statement by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, explained that Buhari’s appeal was contained in his Eid-el-Fitr message to Nigerians which he sent from London, United Kingdom, where he is currently receiving medical attention.

The President’s message read, “I am immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us successfully to conclude another Ramadan fast.

“May the lessons of Ramadan — namely: piety, self-denial, prayers and generosity to the poor and needy — be with us all the time.

“I, again, appeal to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements or actions against our fellow countrymen. We should all resolve to live in peace and unity in our great country, which is the envy of many less endowed nations.”

Buhari left the country on May 7 for another round of consultation with his doctors based in the British capital. He had, in a letter to the National Assembly, said the duration of his medical trip would be determined by his doctors.

Meanwhile, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has called on Nigerians not to relent in sharing love.

Obasa stated this in his Eid-el-Fitr message which was contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Razak.

He also urged Nigerians to continue to work for the unity and peaceful coexistence of citizens.

The Speaker also urged Nigerians to be vigilant at all times and cooperate with the government at all levels to fight crimes in the society.
