Former Vice President and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has urged Nigerians not to despair or lose hope in the country as the current economic recession will soon give way to economic prosperity.
According to Atiku, while it might take some time to get out of the current situation, so much need to be done to achieve economic prosperity since a lot of things were left undone for too long by the nation’s past leaders.
In a Sallah message released by his media office in Abuja, Atiku said Nigerians, particularly the Muslim umma must learn to be their brothers keepers.
While congratulating Muslims on the celebration of the festival of Eid el-Kabir celebration, Atiku urged them to use the opportunity to reflect on the situation in the country and support themselves.
He said Nigerians should celebrate like other people in the world in spite of the economic situation facing the country, assuring them that this storm will pass away.
He said the Sallah celebration calls for sober reflection, prayers, cooperation and the display of solidarity among Nigerians so that no one feels left out.
He called on Nigerians to continue to work hard, persevere and pray for the success of the policies and measures being put in place by the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari to restore the nation’s economy to good health and improve the lives of the people.
