Tinubu Arrives Lagos for Eid-el-Kabir Celebration


President Bola Tinubu has arrived in Lagos State from Abuja, the nation’s capital, ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.


The President is in his home state to spend the Sallah holidays with family, friends and associates.


The presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, had, in an earlier statement, said the President would mark the occasion in prayers and reflection on advancing the transformation of Nigeria in line with his Renewed Hope Agenda.


Recall that the Federal Government has declared Monday, June 17 and Tuesday, June 18, 2024, public holidays to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festival.


In a statement on Friday signed by the Ministry of Interior’s Permanent Secretary, Dr Aishetu Ndayako, quoted the minister, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, as congratulating all Muslim Ummah both at home and in the Diaspora on the occasion.


Tunji-Ojo called on the Muslim Ummah to continue to imbibe the spirit of peace, kindness and sacrifice, as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon Him) and to also use the period to pray for unity, prosperity and the stability of the country.


The statement added, “The minister reiterated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration was committed to safeguarding the lives and property of all Nigerians.


“He further enjoined all Muslim faithful and Nigerians in general to support, cooperate and join hands with the president in his sustained efforts to diversify the economy and progressively accelerate the pace of the nation’s economic recovery.


“While wishing the Muslim Ummah a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration, the minister advised all Nigerians to take responsibility in the resolve to hand over a prosperous Nigeria to the nation’s children.”
