Preach ‘Righteousness And Discipline’ At Ramadan, Buhari Tells Muslims

President Muhammadu Buhari says fasting is not just merely meant to stay hungry or thirsty, but an opportunity to strive for inner purification and self-accountability.

He stated this as he sends his greetings and best wishes to Muslims in Nigeria and across the world as they commence the 30-day Ramadan fast.

“It is meant to inculcate righteousness and discipline,” the President said in his message to the nation on the beginning of the Ramadan.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari urged fasting Muslims to increase their love for humanity, acts of charity, kindness, generosity and gratitude.

He reminded them that the Holy Prophet Muhammad used to spend very generously on the poor and the needy during the period

The President then asked Muslims in the country and all over the world to copy the good examples of the Holy Prophet.

He also called on Muslims and all Nigerians to always remember men and women who are less fortunate than themselves and to help the government in confronting the challenges facing the nation.

President Buhari prayed Allah to grant all Muslims the strength to successfully complete the fasting.
