Citing the example of Prophet Ibrahim who was willing to sacrifice his son, the former president said only sacrifice would make the “Nigeria of our dreams” possible.

He stated this in a series of tweets from his twitter account to felicitate with Muslim faithfuls on the celebration of sallah.

“Let us imbibe Ibrahim’s ideals and put Nigeria first in all we do. I salute the Muslim Ummah this Sallah. Happy Eid-El-Kabir,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Without self-sacrifice, we will never see the Nigeria of our dreams and will always think ‘what about me’ instead of ‘what about Nigeria’.

“On Eid-El-Kabir, we honour Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son. This must teach us that we must all sacrifice for Nigeria’s greatness.”
