Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President, on Friday, urged the Muslims in Nigeria for close to God spiritually and seek his relief from the myriad of problems hindering the progress of the country as the Holy Month of Ramadan starts across the Islamic world.
Atiku advised them to remember the Holy Month as a period of giving, particularly to those desperately in need of help and developing a better society. The politician, in a tweet via his Twitter account, also urged Muslims to embrace peace and the spirit of hard work in order to achieve their desired aims.
“I urge Muslims to seize the once-in-a-year chance to get near God spiritually and seek his favour and relief from the myriad of problems that have become a clog in the wheel of our advancement and growth as a nation.
“It is a time for us to reflect on building a better society and our humanity and provide charity, particularly to people desperately in need of assistance. “Let’s also embrace the spirit of hard work to achieve our desired goals.”
