President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his best wishes to Muslims as they commence 30 days of Ramadan fasting, encouraging them to use the season “to project the best and finest virtues of Islam by particular conduct, and not precept.”

According to a statement issued on Wednesday by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), in a goodwill message to mark the commencement of the holy month of Ramadan, President Buhari said, “Let us use this occasion to put the best teachings of Islam into practice, such as kindness and the love of humanity.”

He added: “This is an occasion for deep reflection and more fear of Allah and avoidance of all sins that harm humanity.”

President Buhari said that “the Ramadan is characterised by abstention from food and drinks from morning to evening, which brings both the rich and poor to partake the experience of hunger together, thereby strengthening the bonds between them.
