President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated all Nigerians on the occasion of the Eid el -Kabir .
Muslim pilgrims performing the Hajj in the holy city of Mecca had ascended the Mount Arafat on Monday , and the Federal Government had subsequently declared Tuesday and Wednesday public holiday for the august occasion .
Taking to his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday morning , the President wished Nigerians well .
In particular , he congratulated his fellow Muslims for the opportunity to witness another Eid – ul – Adha — another name for Eid el – Kabir , which is the Festival of Sacrifice , being the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year . Eid – ul – Adha is considered the holier of the two celebrations .
The President tweeted : “ I felicitate all Nigerians , particularly the Muslim faithful , on this year ’ s celebration .
“ I assure you all that our administration will not rest or relent as we work to build the Nigeria of our dreams — secure , prosperous and free from the ravages of corruption .
“ On this occasion of Eid – ul – Adha , I urge all Nigerians to rise above personal , group , sectarian and other interests , and to promote harmony and tolerance in dealing with one another at all times .
“ We must imbibe this lesson and make it a duty to sacrifice for others and to always remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves . Selfishness , greed and corruption have no place in our lives and in our dealings with one another .
“ Eid – ul – Adha offers an opportunity to remember the submission of Prophet Ibrahim Alaihis – Salam to Allah , by which he taught the world the value of sacrifice in relating with one another . ”
