Eid el Kabir is a festival of sacrifice, and it reminds us of the need for sacrifice and obedience. 
“It is my strong belief that if the charity and generosity displayed by the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) to the less-privileged and the community are replicated by every one of us, the greatness Nigeria desires is assured.
“As we go out to observe the Eid-el Kabir, I also urge our entire Muslim community and our pilgrims, who are preparing to return home, having completed the Hajj, to pray for the unity and prosperity of Nigeria.
“I also urge us to celebrate the festival with all modesty and the knowledge that the period is meant to share and show love,” the Speaker said and prayed for Allah’s blessings to be on Nigeria and Nigerians.
“It is my prayer that we shall celebrate many more Eid-el-Kabir on earth”.
