and eschew intolerance of other people’s opinion, corruption, abuse of power, disregard for due process and
disobedience to the laws of the land.
“I urge all Nigerians, across religious divide, to remain steadfast, prayerful and patriotic . The virtues of
moderation, piety, regular supplication to Allah and being our brother’s keeper should subsist beyond the Ramadan.
Beyond this, every Nigerian should seek to contribute to rebuilding the nation with renewed vigour.

give peace a chance in the spirit of the Eid-el-fitri.

expressing their grievances so that it will be possible for their position to be better understood and addressed
through constructive dialogue.
“Similarly, let us all refrain from using violence to express our stand on issues. Violence only destroy, it does not
build. Let us also shun greed and other vices capable of undermining the socio-political growth of our dear nation,” he
