The spirit of Eid al-Adha that’s been celebrated by the Muslims today, 21st of August, 2018, head of States, President Muhammadu Buhari has been pictured on camera slaughtering the customary Ram used for the celebration of the day.
It’s customary that during the Holiday, a Ram is slaughtered for the celebration of the day and from photos shared online, PMB did the honour of slaughtering the animal that’s to be used to celebrate at his side.
Judging from the photos, the President looks like slaughtering a Ram is a piece of cake.
In his Eid al-Adha message, the president said fighting corruption was a task that must be carried out in other to protect the larger interests of the ordinary Nigerians whom he said were the worst victims of diseases, poverty, malnutrition.
He wrote on his Twitter account,
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.
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
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.
I felicitate with 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.
