“As we persevere and struggle to confront our present challenges and the temporary pain we experience, I enjoin you to remain hopeful that there is light and prosperity at the end of the tunnel.
“My team and I are leaving no stone unturned in our bid to deliver on the promises we made, in spite of the present difficulties.”
This is the message President Bola Ahmed Tinubu sent to Nigerians as Muslims across the world celebrate the Islamic New Year in Hijri calendar 1445.
The President appealed to the citizens to imbibe the important values of patience, perseverance and faithfulness, “which were at the roots of the decision by Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to migrate from Mecca to Madina, 1445 years ago.”
He called for earnest prayers and supplications to God Almighty to direct and protect our path to greatness and prosperity in Nigeria.
I prayed that the new Hijri Year would usher in a more peaceful and prosperous period in our lives.
