Eid Mubarak

I felicitate with the Muslim Ummah in the Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State, and Nigeria on the commemoration of Eid-el-Kabir 2019.

Beyond the festivities, it is a reminder of the lesson of absolute obedience exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son. Likewise, we must strive in our daily lives to obey the commands as laid down in the Quran and Hadiths.

We are also enjoined in this season to do charitable acts, lending a helping hand and giving to the needy amongst us. We must exercise tolerance of persons whose faiths may differ from ours and shun divisive statements that can brew discord or threaten the peaceful co-existence of people in our Nation, Nigeria.

Let us in this season, also pray for the APC led government of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR and all our leaders, for peace, prosperity and security in our land.

As we celebrate, may our acts of ibadah be accepted and may the blessing of Eid-el-Kabir be with us, now and always.

Once again, I congratulate you all and wish you Happy Eid-el-Kabir Celebration.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu, OON
