President Muhammadu Buhari sends his greetings and best wishes to Muslims in Nigeria and across the world as they commence the 30-day Ramadan fast.

In his message to the nation on the beginning of the Ramadan, the President says fasting is not just merely 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 says. President Buhari enjoins fasting Muslims to increase their love for humanity, acts of charity, kindness, generosity and gratitude.
