Ramadan: Buhari asks Muslims to exercise discipline, and feed the poor

General Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria, exhorted the Muslim Ummah worldwide on Friday in Abuja to seek better personal discipline, which is vital for the development of a great nation.

Buhari stated in a statement signed late Friday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, that the period provides a unique opportunity to "understand the hunger experienced by the poor in order to feel what it is like to be deprived and marginalized."

'President Buhari greets Ramadan fasting and calls on Muslims to feed the underprivileged,' reads the statement.

According to him, "Muslims should seek greater personal discipline, which is necessary for the realisation of a great nation."

He warned the Muslim elite against wasting food and overspending while others suffer from hunger and poverty, imploring them to care for their neighbors, the destitute, and the marginalized.

Buhari also requested prayers for peace in the country and around the world, as well as healing and harmony.

As a result, he wished all Muslims a successful fasting period of 30 days.
