Sallah: Audu felicitates with muslims, urges faith in Tinubu’s administration

The minister of steel development Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu has felicitated with the Muslim Ummah as they join the rest of the world to commemorate the 2024 Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

He used the opportunity to call on Nigerians to keep faith with the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

This was contained in his Eid-el-Kabir message conveyed in a statement made available by his special assistant on Media, Lizzy Okoji in Abuja on Sunday.

He further urged Nigerians and Muslim faithfuls to reflect on the sacrifices and acts of obedience of Prophet Ibrahim, who trusted in the Almighty Allah (SWT) even at his most trying times and the rewards afterwards.

 “The sacrifices and trials we are going through as a nation will yield positive results soon thereby ushering in dividends of democracy, good governance and a better life for all citizens as envisaged by the robust policies and bold reform programmes of Mr President.”

He called on Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for the nation, stressing the need for patriotism and the importance of working together in peace, unity, and harmony for the development of the nation. 

He said the electioneering season is over and now is the time for nation-building and good governance irrespective of political, ethical and/or religious divides.

Audu also stated that the 25 years of uninterrupted democracy of Nigeria’s Fourth Republic should not be taken for granted which has shown how formidable Nigeria can be as a nation in spite of differences in tribes and tongues.

He reiterated his commitment to delivering on his mandate of reviving the steel industry in line with the Renewed Hope agenda geared at growing the economy to over $1 trillion by 2031.

This is also as the task of creating millions of job opportunities for Nigerians, especially the youths towards making Nigeria a global investment destination remains a priority.
