Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that there is the need for self-sacrifice by Nigerians for the country to be great.
Jonathan, who stated this via his twitter handle on Monday, said that without self-sacrifice “we will never see Nigeria of our dreams.”
In his Eid-el-Kabir message, Jonathan cited Ibrahim, who was ready to sacrifice his son.
He stated, “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 tweeted.
“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.”
