According to him “this year’s 30 days of Ramadan fasting require more aggressive resolve across the local governments and area councils to ensure renewed prayers, abstinence, alms giving (Zakkat) and intense spiritual exercise of virtues of Islam”.

The National President also urged Muslim faithfuls all over Nigeria to “endeavour to demonstrate
deep introspection with greatest devotion and
fear of Allah.”

He urged them to pray for all the newly elected office holders to lead with interest of the people who voted them and to have fear of Allah in delivering on their campaign promises.
