Muslims in Nigeria joined their counterparts around the world on Tuesday to begin the 30-day fast of Ramadan.
“I must extend my most sincere greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters who have already started the Ramadan fast.
“Now is not just the time to refrain from eating, drinking and other pleasures of the world; it is a time of rededication to the higher virtues – love, kindness, generosity and consideration for others, regardless of faith or ethnicity.
“And also for our nation, time, I believe we must re-commit to unity, brotherhood, peace and reconciliation in various ways so that our country achieves all the goals we have set for ourselves. .
“So I wish our Muslim brothers and sisters a very happy period of Ramadan; Ramadan Kareem, ”he said. (NOPE)
