The All Progressives Congress, APC, National Director Of Administration, Dr. Abubakar Khalil Sulaiman, has congratulated Muslims in the country and world over on the commencement of the Islamic Holy Month of Ramadan.
Sulaiman in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen, said Ramadan offers another chance for Muslims to rededicate themselves to the worship of Allah.
Describing Ramadan as an important pillar of Islam, Sulaiman said the fasting period humbles both the rich and the poor who are both expected to go without food between sunrise and sunset for 30 days.
The APC Director of Administration who noted that a true and committed Muslim is known during Ramadan urged the adherents of the Islamic faith to use the period for spiritual cleansing and healing and also to pray for the peace of Kogi state in particular and Nigeria in general.
Sulaiman also used the opportunity to call on adherents of various religions to love one another and live together in peace which Kogi is known for in Nigeria and other parts of the world.
He said, ”I congratulate Muslims in Kogi State on the commencement of Ramadan because it is a privilege to witness that of 2022. I urge them to use this period to move closer to Allah and rededicate themselves to the teachings of the Holy Quran as taught by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
“As we seek the face of Allah in this holy month, let us hold dear, those lessons of the holy Prophet and pray earnestly for peace in the country. As a people, we can achieve a lot more in a peaceful atmosphere and all that is required is love for one another and commitment to work for the peace and unity of the country.” He added.
