    “Unilag Muslim Community hereby once again advise local, state and national leaders to listen to and respect grassroots opinions, tinker with governance structure as being agitated for and facilitate speedy reforms for the sake of Nigeria’s corporate existence. Leaders at all level must demonstrate more compassion and visible sense of empathy. No doubt, Nigeria is potentially a great country, once it can get its act together. Nigerians should also move away from permanent skepticism about their own goodness and that of Nigeria and develop a more positive mindset that is development supportive. Muslims should behave as if everyday is for fasting. We say to all, happy Eid-El-Fitri.
