President Bola Tinubu participated in the Eid-el-Fitr prayers alongside fellow Muslims at Dodan Barracks in Lagos State on Wednesday, as revealed in photos shared on the official X handle of the Nigerian President.

Following the prayers, led by the Chief Imam of Lagos State, Sheikh Sulaiman Oluwatoyin Abou-Nolla, President Tinubu urged Nigerians to uphold their faith in his government and remain patriotic citizens.
