The President who congratulated Muslims for successfully undertaken fasting in last four weeks expressed hope that the faithful would utilize the spiritual lessons of the month and the Holy Prophet’s teachings of piety, love, justice, fairness, equity, peaceful co-existence with others, tolerance, honesty and dedication learnt in the month would remain for the benefit and greater glory of the nation.
Jonathan lamented the pains and anguish of the victims of insurgency, yet admonished Nigerians not to be despair as he noted the terrorists and purveyors of anarchy wished
Instead of being hopeless, the President called on the citizens to remain unwaveringly committed to showing solidarity to the Armed Forces and other security agencies as well as the full support they require to prosecute the war against terrorism to a successful conclusion.
Mr. President assured all Nigerians of the government avowed resolve to fight insurgents, put the scourge behind it and give attention to the urgent task of improving the living conditions of “our people in all parts of the country”, maintaining that the Federal government would not be distracted from pursuing its goal of transforming the nation into a “strong, united, progressive, stable, secure and prosperous” entity in which all citizens would live in peace in spite of immense diversities.
