A Governorship aspirant in Kogi State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Friday Idachaba, has sent his greetings and best wishes to Muslims in Nigeria and across the world as they commence the 29 or 30-day Ramadan fast.
In a statement he personally signed and made available to journalists in Lokoja yesterday after the crescent moon of Ramadan was reportedly sighted says fasting is not merely meant to stay hungry or thirsty, but an opportunity to strive for inner purification, self-accountability and inculcation of righteousness and discipline.
Chief Idachaba enjoins fasting Muslims to increase their love for humanity, acts of charity, kindness, generosity and gratitude.
He says the Holy Prophet Muhammad used to spend very generously on the poor and the needy during this period, and urges Muslims in the country and all over the world to copy the good example.
He called on Muslims and all Nigerians to always remember men and women who are less fortunate than themselves and to help the government in confronting the challenges facing the nation.
He prayed Allah to grant all Muslims the strength to successfully complete the fasting period.
