Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has urged Muslim believers in Nigeria to demonstrate generosity towards the less fortunate as they embark on the Ramadan fasting period.

In a statement released by his Media Office in Abuja on Sunday, Abubakar encouraged Muslims to approach the Holy month of Ramadan with a focus on seeking Allah's mercy and forgiveness.

He emphasized the importance of utilizing the Ramadan period for increased prayers and supplications, particularly in Nigeria, calling on Muslims to beseech God for His mercy upon the nation and its people in light of the sighting of the Ramadan moon.

He stated, “The month of Ramadan is a mercy from God upon humanity and all those who partake of the fasting. It is for that reason that the Almighty also enjoins us to show more love to one another and deepen our charity in the holy month.’’

Abubakar said that this year’s Ramadan was happening at a time when there was hardship in the country.


“It therefore becomes more important for those with means to ensure that they extend their charity far greater than the previous years,” he said.

The former vice president enjoined every Muslim to be steadfast in the requirements of the holy month.

He urged them to pray that the Almighty Allah should shower His mercy and blessings on Nigeria and guide the country to increased prosperity and peace, during and after the Ramadan period.
