In his message to the nation, President Muhammadu Buhari preaches for unity among Nigerians especially at a time when the country is faced with multiple challenges.

His full speech reads:

“On this blessed occasion, I wish that the Eid festival brings with it peace, safety, security, brotherhood and love amongst all. #EidAlFitr

“Unity and solidarity among all citizens, Muslims and Christians are imperative especially at a time when our country is faced with multiple challenges which are surmountable only when we come together as one.

“It is important that we remember how we share, through our faiths, common bonds that should serve to unite us and not allow ourselves to succumb to those who seek to divide us, using our two great religions, for their own selfish advantages.

“We should jointly pray against the tragic incidents of kidnapping and banditry and the desperate quest for political power expressed through blackmail against the existence of our country as a united entity.

“We must resist the temptation to retreat into our communities. I urge our political and religious leaders as well as traditional rulers to encourage our citizens to turn towards one another in love and compassion.

“During the holidays and beyond, I urge all Nigerians to continue to observe all COVID-19 prevention measures, and to celebrate responsibly. #EidMubarak
