ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has, in his Sallah message, urged Nigerians to emulate self-sacrifice and put Nigeria first before any other thing.
Jonathan who gave the Sallah message on Monday in felicitation with the muslim faithful all over the world as they mark the 2016 Eid-El-Kabir celebration also called on Nigerians to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for mankind.
“On Eid-El-Kabir, we honor Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son. This must teach us that we must all sacrifice for Nigeria’s greatness.”
“Without self sacrifice, we will never see the Nigeria of our dreams and will always think ‘what about me’ instead of ‘what about Nigeria’. Let us imbibe Prophet Ibrahim’s ideals and put Nigeria first in all we do. I salute the Muslim Ummah this Sallah. Happy Eid-El-Kabir”, the message read.
