Immediate past governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has solicited prayers for Nigeria’s harmony and prosperity as Muslims begin the Holy Month of Ramadan.
In a commemoratory message, Alhaji Ahmed congratulated Muslims for witnessing another Ramadan fast, which, he said, is a cardinal pillar of Islam.
The Holy month, he said, is a time for renewed purification, forgiveness and kindness towards the others.
Reflecting that the last year has challenged everyone, the former governor urged Muslims to move beyond the abstinence required by Ramadan and demonstrate gratitude to Allah by showing concern and kindness for the less privileged.
Alhaji Ahmed also asked Muslims to pray for Nigeria to overcome her current challenges so that the country and its people can prosper in a safe and peaceful environment.
