As Nigeria joins muslim faithful all over the world to celebrate Eid-el-Fitri, leaders in the country have called on Nigerians to embrace peace, love and unity in order to foster goodwill and national cohesion. Nigeria’s former Vice President Atiku Abubakar urges Muslims in the country to portray Islam positively through the spirit of tolerance and commitment to peaceful coexistence in their everyday conducts.
In his goodwill Sallah message to Nigerian Muslims to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fasting period, the former Vice President notes that the lessons of this Holy month should be taken beyond the celebration.
According to him, self-discipline and love for fellow human beings is one of the important virtues of the Ramadan fasting period, and that these virtues should not “desert our hearts because the event has come to an end.”
