President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that he is working on the insecurity challenges and cost of living in the country, nothing that they won’t rest until he brings relief to Nigerians.

In a statement issued by his Special Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said, the President gave the assurance in his Eid-el Kabir message to Nigerian Muslims and other citizens.

“I am quite aware of the difficulties people are facing and working to resolve them.”

According to him, “if we are putting the teachings of our religions into practice, most of the evils afflicting our society would have been solved.”

Noting that “religion shouldn’t just be used as a mere badge of identity, but as a motivator for doing good for our country and humanity.”

The president frowned at the civil servant stealing of public funds.

He said “the exploitation of the people by traders and the stealing of public funds by civil servants and other holders of public trust is a reflection of the abandonment of the teachings of our religions.”

“Our society is a bundle of contradictions. People display external religiosity without fear of God; they make life difficult for others; money becomes their god; leaders abandon their oaths of office by taking money meant for the welfare of the people and divert it to their private pockets.”

The President used the occasion to call on all Muslims to reflect on the significance of the sacrifice epitomised by Eid.

”We should show love and care to our neighbours and others while celebrating this spiritually important event in our lives.”

He further advised Muslims “to promote the good virtues of Islam through personal examples and practice.”
