PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has sent an Eid-el-Fitr message to Nigerians from London where he is presently convalescing as a result of his illness, admonishing citizens to avoid reckless statements while resolving to live in peace.

According to a statement issued by Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Saturday, it was a message of greetings “to Nigerian Muslims and Christians on the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitr.”

The terse statement quoted the President as saying: “I am immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us successfully to conclude another Ramadan fast. My greetings to all Nigerian Muslims and our brother Christians on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr.

“May the lessons of Ramadan namely: piety, self-denial, prayers and generosity to the poor and needy be with us for all time.

“I, again, appeal to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements or actions against our fellow countrymen. We should all resolve to live in peace and unity in our great country, which is the envy of many less endowed nations.

“Happy Eid-el-Fitr.”
