Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Nigerians not to condone or tolerate persons who commit evil either against their fellow citizens or the state.
Tinubu made the appeal in his Eid-el-Fitr message on Wednesday.
The former governor of Lagos State congratulated Nigerian Muslims in completing this year’s Ramadan fast and urged them to remember the lessons of Ramadan.
According to him, fasting is a sign of complete devotion to God.
The statement read: “We must never condone and tolerate the works and words of those who would do evil or who would pit brother against brother, Nigerian against Nigerian.”
The APC chieftain also urged Nigerians to put politics aside and continue to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to succeed.
He noted that the president and his government needs the prayers of Nigerians to help them in resolving the various challenges bedevilling the country.
“Let us put politics aside and continue to pray to Almighty Allah for our country and all its people.
“Let us remember President Muhammadu Buhari and his government in our prayers that they may be given the requisite strength and wisdom to protect the nation, defeat the challenges that confront us and help establish Nigeria as a more prosperous and just land,” the statement read.
Tinubu also emphasised that Nigerians should pray for soldiers and those that are on the frontline against the war on terrorism and coronavirus pandemic.
