As the nation and the rest of the world mark Eid-El-Fitri and the end of Ramadan,
President Goodluck Jonathan congratulates all Nigerians of the Islamic faith who
have successfully completed the month-long Ramadan fast.
President Jonathan joins the Moslem faithful in the pious hope and expectation
that God Almighty will grant the prayers of Nigerians during Ramadan for the
continued peace, well-being and progress of the nation.
Against the background of last Friday’s terrorist attack on the United Nation’s
Building in Abuja and other recent events which may have caused Nigerians to be
apprehensive about the security of their lives and property, the President wishes
to reassure all citizens and foreigners resident in the country that his
Administration is taking every necessary action to enhance national security.
In this regard, President Jonathan has directed the security services to rapidly
evolve and implement additional security, intelligence-gathering and counter-
terrorism measures, including greater cooperation with other nations engaged in
the global war against terrorism, to thwart the evil machinations of misguided
terrorists and other promoters of mindless violence in the country.
The President also wishes to assure Nigerians that he will not be distracted from
the full implementation of his Agenda for National Transformation by the actions of
terrorists and retrogressive elements in the country.
With his new national economic management team now fully established and
functional, Nigerians can look forward to visible progress in the fulfillment of the
President’s promise of socio-economic revitalization, job creation and the renewal
of national infrastructure in the coming months.
While President Jonathan will continue to give the nation required leadership and
direction for greater unity, stability and progress, he wishes to stress, however,
that all Nigerians have a role to play in the urgent task of nation-building.
As they celebrate Eid-El-Fitri and the end of Ramadan, the President urges
Nigerians, therefore, to rededicate themselves to supporting government in every
possible way to ensure that the country continues to make steady progress
towards the fulfillment of its vast, God-given potentials.
He wishes Nigerians happy Eid celebrations and prays that God Almighty will
continue to bless, guide and protect the country.
