As Muslims in Nigeria and across the world commence the 30-day Ramadan fast, President Muhammadu Buhari has enjoined them to increase their love for humanity.

In a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), the president said “fasting is not just meant to stay hungry or thirsty,” but an opportunity to strive for inner purification and self-accountability.

“It is meant to inculcate righteousness and discipline,” he said, adding that they should engage more in acts of charity, kindness, generosity and gratitude.

While noting that Prophet Muhammad used to spend very generously on the poor and the needy during this period, Buhari urged Muslims in the country and all over the world to copy the good example.
