Eyebrows Raised as Buhari Delivers Fantastic Message to Nigerians

President Muhammadu Buhari, has again assured Nigerians that better days are coming, while applauding them for making sacrifices in the face of what he described as, “temporary economic and social challenges”.

Buhari, who stated this in a message he personally signed to mark the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations nationwide, on Tuesday, July 5, called on the rich to remember the millions of Nigerians suffering deprivation, because of the violence perpetrated by terrorists.

Recall, that majority of Nigerians are passing through harsh economic realities, under this present administration.

According to a recent Punch Report, smart young men now leverage on social events to make brisk money, and also combat hunger.

While some have turned into emergency praise singers, hailing and flocking around people for a token at such gatherings, others simply think outside the box, parking and watching over vehicles, in return for financial reward.

Most of what they make from such smart concepts, go into taking care of food and other basic needs.

In Kwara, Kogi and Ekiti States, for instance, theft of cooked food, is now a common feature.

Assuring Nigerians, Buhari said; “I am not unaware of what Nigerians are going through, and I want to use this medium to commend the amazing sacrifices of Nigerians in the face of the temporary economic and social challenges, and also reassure Nigerians that my administration is working assiduously hard towards providing basic needs and other amenities”.‎

Buhari added, that he would not relent in the fight against corruption and would ensure that all appropriate and legal measures are deplored to root out the malaise.

He also commended the Armed Forces and Security Agencies, for the gains recorded in the fight against terrorists and the rescue of hostages in the North-Eastern part of the country.

He appealed for the support, understanding and patience of all Nigerians and international partners, as the country explores the fastest means to end the economic sabotage in the Niger Delta, and amicably resolve the conflicts within the region.

He said:‎ “I promise you all better days ahead, even as we remain grateful for your unflinching support to our administration”.

Buhari, congratulated Muslims in Nigeria and around the world on the successful completion of the fast, prayer and alms giving in obedience to the Divine Command.

He prayed that the Almighty Allah would reward their sacrifices with increased blessings, and a more prosperous future.

He expressed the hope that all true followers of Islam, had been rejuvenated on the true meaning and essence of life and through the teachings of Prophet Muhammad.

He said: “We have learnt to imbibe the virtues of piety, sacrifice, love, self-denial and good conduct in our daily relationship with one another.

“As we celebrate another Eid-el-Fitri, I admonish all patriotic Nigerians to uphold these lessons, and also appreciate the numerous material and human blessings God has endowed us with.

“Let us learn to show gratitude, respect and tolerance to one other, irrespective of our religion, tribe, language and political leanings, as we forge ahead to build on our strengths and opportunities to make Nigeria great again”.
