Security, well-beings of Nigerians remain my priority, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with all Nigerians as they celebrate this year's Eid-el-Kabir.

President Buhari also congratulates all Nigerian Muslims who are currently in Saudi Arabia to participate in the rites of the Hajj.

As they join the global Islamic community in celebrating Eid-el-Kabir, Buhari urged Muslims and other Nigerians to rededicate themselves to a greater acceptance and internalisation of its lessons of piety, faithfulness, dedication, fortitude, obedience, sacrifice and selfless service which are for the benefit of all mankind.

In a statement by Garba Shehu, the president's senior special assistant on media and publicity, the president called for more patience, fortitude, tolerance, endurance, patriotism and a greater willingness to make personal sacrifices for the good of all as his administration strives to lead the nation towards rapidly overcoming its current security, economic and developmental challenges.

President Buhari assured all Nigerians that their safety, well-being and progress remained uppermost in his thoughts and actions, and that he would continue to work with all his might to deliver the positive changes in national life which they expect after his election.

The president seized this opportunity to commiserate with families in Maiduguri and North-Eastern Nigeria who lost beloved relatives in recent terrorist attacks.

Meanwhile, the president has directed the armed forces and other security agencies to provide maximum security across the nation during Eid-el-Kabir prayers and celebrations, especially in areas most vulnerable to terrorist attacks.
