As the Muslim Ummah marks the 2017 Eid-el-Fitr, the Presidency on Sunday released an audio Sallah message from President Buhari, which was recorded in Hausa.
He said: “I Muhammadu Buahri want to use this opportunity to wish fellow Nigerians a happy sallah celebration. May God accept our supplications that were offered during the month of Holy Ramadan.
May he enable us make good use of the lessons we learnt. I am very grateful for your prayers for my health. May God help us fulfil the promises we made during the fasting period and may he solve the problems of our country.
In conclusion, I am calling on the citizens of Nigeria to avoid making provocative statements. All we ask from God is peaceful coexistence in Nigeria. May God bless this farming season, to enable us get abundant food at affordable prices. May God help us conclude the sallah festivities in peace, Thank you.”
