The main opposition parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), have accused the President Bola Tinubu-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration of enacting anti-people policies that have made it difficult for many people to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir as Nigerians celebrate it.
The criticisms from the PDP and LP, which came on the day that President Tinubu completed one month in office, prompted an immediate response from the Presidency, which accused the PDP of being jealous of Tinubu’s accomplishments in three weeks, claiming the president accomplished in three weeks what the PDP could not do in 16 years.
Also, the ruling APC urged Nigerians to continue to support President Tinubu because he is taking courageous and decisive steps to reposition Nigeria for rapid economic growth and wholesome greatness.
Eid al-Adha, sometimes referred to as Eid-el-Kabir or the Feast of Sacrifice, is a very symbolic Islamic festival and holiday that honors the Prophet Ibrahim’s readiness to sacrifice his son in compliance with Allah’s mandate.
In the meantime, the APC congratulated Nigerians on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, the Islamic festival of sacrifice, especially the Muslim faithful, and asked them to support President Tinubu’s administration because the leader is taking audacious and daring action to reposition the nation.
In addition to emphasizing the importance of self-sacrifice on Eid al-Kabir, according to APC spokesman Felix Morka, it also highlights Allah’s limitless ability and readiness to provide for humanity.
“This year’s festivities remarkably fall during a time when our dear President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is taking some brave and decisive steps to reposition our beloved country for rapid economic growth and wholesome greatness, in line with his administration’s Renewed Hope agenda.
