”Muslim Faithful and indeed all Nigerians are enjoined to use the occasion of Eid el-Kabir to pray for the peace, development and prosperity of the country,” he said. He called on Nigerians to support the administration as it works assiduously to pull the country out of the present hardship and restore the country on the path of growth in all facets.
”Indeed, Nigeria is today passing through challenging times in its socio-economic life. ”Happily, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is already employing all legitimate and innovative means to restore the country’s battered economy to health in the quickest possible time.
