|Eng Sale Mamman|
With special thanks to the Almighty Allah i felicitate with the people of Taraba State particularly the Muslim faithful, as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.
My warm congratulations to all Muslims who have joined their brothers and sisters from across the world in participating in the rites of Hajj in Saudi Arabia, as they mark the very important pious occasion.
At this important occasion we need to remind all Muslims to remember the purpose of the celebration, which is to commemorate the trials and triumph of Prophet Ibrahim who is being remembered and venerated across ages for passing a great test of faith.
I urge all and sundry to be steadfast in their commitment in supporting President Muhammadu Buhari's efforts in building the nation of our dream.
Let me also enjoin the good people of Taraba State to always remember their shared heritage and destiny of greatness and to be guided by the Taraba spirit of firm confidence and brotherhood as people with a common destiny.
I can not thank you enough the people and government of Taraba State for the collective solidarity to me as worthy Son, since my appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Thank you all and happy eid-el Kabir
Minister-Designate, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
