”Stop ‘Glorifying Thieves’’ President Buhari Appeals To Nigerians
President Buhari has appealed to Nigerians to stop glorifying thieves in the society. In his Sallah message to mark the end of the Ramadan fast, President Buhari said thieves in the society must be treated with disdain for bringing hardships to others.
”Selfishness and greed have overcome people’s conscience so much that they don’t have moral inhibitions in the pursuit of their greed. I always wonder why any true believer, be they politicians, civil servants or businessmen, would seek to make profits from the misfortunes of others”he said
While congratulating Muslims on the completion of their fast, President Buhari urged them to reflect on the importance of Ramadan in becoming good ambassadors of Islam at all times.
President Buhari enjoined religious leaders to always pray for peace and unity in the country and avoid making inflammatory utterances that endanger peace or promote conflicts.
The President also appealed to fellow citizens to forgive one another and embrace peace.
In this respect, President Buhari lauded the families of recipients of national honours for showing good examples to Nigerians and urged our country men and women to copy their good examples.
He thanked Nigerians for their patience and assured that their sacrifices will not be in vain, adding that reforming a country that was pushed into near decay on account of corruption comes with teething pains.
“But these pains are temporary, the APC administration which I am privileged to lead, is beholden to the ordinary Nigerians and will leave no stone unturned to make their security, welfare and happiness our priority”, the President further reassured.
