Former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, on Thursday enjoined Muslims to conduct themselves well during the holy month, to maximise the spiritual and physical benefits inherent in the fasting period.

Babangida made the appeal in a statement on Thursday in Minna.

“I join all to congratulate Muslims in Nigeria and across the world for seeing yet another Ramadan month.

“It brings to note the transient nature of the world, with the realisation that some people we observed the month with last year and many years back are no longer there this year.

“So, we have this and many more reasons to thank Allah (SWT) for His mercy to be alive, to witness this holy month.

“We are no doubt faced with various challenges at personal and national levels; but we are always strong and believing in divine intervention to always take us through the right path with prayers, to find solutions to our challenges.”

“I enjoin Muslim Ummah and scholars to pray and preach, so that all Muslims will, in this month, accord Ramadan as an important pillar of Islam with the needed devotion for the good of the religion, humanity and the society at large,” IBB said. (NAN)
