Politics Africa: Buhari felicitates with Muslims, urges them to stop glorifying thieves
The President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with Muslim Faithful as they celebrate Eid-el-Fitri and used the opportunity to cousel Nigerians in general to embrace the doctrines of religion and make it the moral compass for social conduct.
Buhari in his Sallah message signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu stressed the importance of putting the virtues of Islam into practice beyond the fasting season.

His message read “While congratulating Muslims on completing this spiritually significant month of sacrifice, the President urged them to reflect on the importance of Ramadan in becoming good ambassadors of Islam at all times.
He further noted that, “religion should be the moral compass for all believers in their public and personal lives, if people allow the teachings of their religions to influence their conducts, problems such as corruption, which diverts public funds to private pockets, would have been eliminated in the society.
However, he noted that, “selfishness and greed have overcome people’s conscience so much that they don’t have moral inhibitions in the pursuit of their greed.”
“It is impossible to separate morality from religion, and removing this connection encourages corrupt leaders and other exploiters to commit atrocities against the society.
“I always wonder why any true believer, be they politicians, civil servants or businessmen, would seek to make profits from the misfortunes of others
“He also urged ordinary Nigerians to stop glorifying thieves by treating them with disdain for bringing hardships to others.
“President Buhari enjoined religious leaders to always pray for peace and unity in the country and avoid making inflammatory utterances that endanger peace or promote conflicts.
“The President also appealed to fellow citizens to forgive one another and embrace peace.
“In this respect, President Buhari lauded the families of recipients of national honours for showing good examples to Nigerians and urged our country men and women to copy their good examples.
“He thanked Nigerians for their patience and assured that their sacrifices will not be in vain, adding that reforming a country that was pushed into near decay on account of corruption comes with teething pains.
“But these pains are temporary, the APC administration which I am privileged to lead, is beholden to the ordinary Nigerians and will leave no stone unturned to make their security, welfare and happiness our priority.”
