President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerian Muslims to reject the voices of those seeking to divide the nation.
Buhari said this on Monday in a message by his spokesperson, Gaqrba Shehu, while welcoming the beginning of Muslim’s holy month of Ramadan.
In the message to the nation to mark the occasion, Buhari prayed to Allah to accept “our sacrifices and increase the unity, solidarity, peace and prosperity of the nation.”
According to Shehu, the President tasked Muslims in the country to exercise patience, tolerance and reject voices that seek to divide the nation.
He also urged all citizens to show compassion to the less privileged and remember those that have been displaced by conflict in their charity and prayers in this important period.
