He recently revealed this via his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, Nigerians practising Islam should learn to imbibe the lessons of sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim and work for the peace, stability, unity and progress of Nigeria.
He added that persistence in our prayers and tenacity in our belief can make Nigeria a better place for everyone.
His words, “On behalf of my family and government of Lagos State, I join millions of people around the world, to wish our Muslim brothers and sisters in the state and in Nigeria happy Eid-el-Kabir, which comes with significant lessons for mankind.”
“Eid al-Adha has become a symbolic event in the history of mankind, following the events that led to the sacrifice by Prophet Ibrahim, who held tenaciously to his faith in God despite his unpleasant circumstances at the time.”
“The festival, therefore, reminds us that there will always be great rewards when we have abiding faith and patience in trying periods; persistence in prayers and tenacity in our belief, as well as sacrifice for the progress of mankind and development of our society.”
