President Muhammadu Buhari has urged all citizens to show love to the millions of the less privileged and remember those that have been displaced by conflict in their charity and prayers in this important period.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari urged Muslims in Nigeria to exercise patience and tolerance and reject voices that seek to divide the nation.
Buhari, in a message to the nation to mark the occasion, prayed to Allah to accept sacrifices made during this period and prayed the Almighty Allah to increase the unity, solidarity, peace and prosperity in the nation.
The President is currently in London, United Kingdom (UK) for medical vacation and he is expected to come back to Nigeria this month.
He also welcomed the start of the Muslim’s holy month of Ramadan marking the commencement of 30 days of fast.
