President Muhammadu Buhari has called for the continued peace, progress and prosperity of Nigeria, as Muslims begin on Monday, the month-long Ramadan.
Buhari’s message came on Sunday night following the news of the sighting of the lunar month of Ramadhan.
The President noted that Islam is a religion of peace that upholds the values of tolerance and mutual coexistence without a place for hatred and violence.
He urged Muslims to use the fasting period to build a relationship of friendship and harmony with fellow citizens of other faiths.
President Buhari prayed to Allah for the continued peace, progress, and the wellbeing of the country.
