Nigeria’s former Vice President and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has welcomed the Muslim community across the country into the holy month of Ramadan 2023.

In a press release sent to Naija News through his media team on Wednesday morning, Atiku said the Ramadan month comes with blessings from the Almighty and with the opportunity for the citizens to wash away their worries and hopelessness.

Atiku admonished the Muslim faithful to take advantage of the benefits of the holy month of Ramadan to seek spiritual guidance from God.

The statement reads: “It is with a sense of praise to the Almighty Allah that I welcome the Muslim faithful in Nigeria and across the globe to this year’s glorious month of Ramadan.

“As Muslims, we understand that the basic tenets of this holy month are about sacrifice and devotion in worship to God.

“For us as Nigerians, this year’s Ramadan has come at a time when our dear country is at a crossroads. For us as individuals and as a people, we are at a point of despondency and confusion.

“But the month of Ramadan has come to us as a blessing from the Almighty with an opportunity for us to wash away our worries, doubts, and hopelessness. It is quite clear that this holy month’s essential principles are needed to heal our wounds, both as individuals and as a country.

“First is the importance of sacrifice to our families and the people around us and to the cause of peace. And secondly, is the requirement of piety from us all in the worship of God.

“I, therefore, enjoin all Muslims in Nigeria and the world over to use the benefits of this holy month of Ramadan to seek spiritual guidance, as I wish us a happy Ramadan fasting
