President Bola Tinubu has said that the present challenges in the country, especially the struggling economy and insecurity are not insurmountable.
Tinubu, who stated this in his Sallah message, underscored the need for all Nigerians to face the future with vigour, renewed hope, and confidence that tomorrow shall be better and brighter.
“At the moment, our country is going through some challenges, especially with our struggling economy and simmering security. While I acknowledge all of these, I want to assure you that they are not insurmountable. I am working day and night with my team, fleshing out solutions. We have started with the decisions taken so far, to reform our economy and remove all impediments to growth.
“As we embrace the present challenges, we must face the future with vigour and renewed hope with the confidence that our tomorrow shall be better and brighter,” he said.
The president stressed the need to multiply good deeds with kindness to fellow Muslims and others by helping and supporting the weak and vulnerable in our communities.
“The best way by which we can demonstrate this example is in how we conduct ourselves in relation to our fellow citizens and in our duties to our beloved country. We must imbibe and manifest those values inherent in Prophet Ibrahim’s life, namely; complete devotion to Allah, tolerance, patience, perseverance, selflessness, love, and compassion,” he said.
