Ex President Goodluck Jonathan Sends Goodwill Message as Ramadan Fast Commences

Former President Goodluck Jonathan
The Ramadan fast commences today.  Ex President Goodluck Jonathan released a goodwill message to all muslims nationwide stating:

"As we enter into the holy month of Ramadan, I wish the Muslim Ummah a successful fast. I enjoin all Nigerians to join our brothers and sisters of the Islamic faith in prayers for the peace and prosperity of Nigeria. This is a time to also reflect on the virtues taught by prophet Mohammed (SAW) which virtues include concern for the less privileged in society, increased offering of salat and introspection for the purpose of character development. God bless the Muslim Ummah and may God bless Nigeria. Ramadan Kareem. GEJ."

Observing Ramadam is one of the five pillars of Islam.  It is obligatory and muslims are encouraged to reflect, abstain from food and practice self discipline while keeping their minds and bodies focused on good deeds. The Ramadan period will end on or about 17th July 2015.
