I Won’t Rest Until I Bring Relief To Nigerians, Buhari Vows

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Nigerians to put the interest of the country above selfish interests and “use religion as a motivation for the love of our common humanity.”

In his Eid-el Kabir message to Nigerian Muslims and other citizens, President Buhari in a statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Friday, said that “if we are putting the teachings of our religions into practice, most of the evils afflicting our society would have been solved.”

According to the President, “religion shouldn’t just be used as a mere badge of identity, but as a motivator for doing good for our country and humanity.”

He explained that, “the exploitation of the people by traders and the stealing of public funds by civil servants and other holders of public trust is a reflection of the abandonment of the teachings of our religions.

“Our society is a bundle of contradictions. People display external religiosity without fear of God; they make life difficult for others; money becomes their god; leaders abandon their oaths of office by taking money meant for the welfare of the people and divert it to their private pockets.”

He used the occasion to call on all Muslims to reflect on the significance of the sacrifice epitomised by Eid.
