Tinubu sends message to Muslims as they round up Ramadan

Nigeria's president-elect, Bola Tinubu, urged Muslims to adhere to the sacred spiritual obligation of the five pillars of Islam during the Eid-el-Fitri celebration after the Holy Month of Ramadan.

In a statement released on Thursday, April 20, and seen by Legit.ng, Tinubu said with the help of Almighty Allah, Nigerian Muslims have gone through a period of abstinence, self-discipline, self-reflection, self-purification in gratitude and total submission to the will of Allah.

According to the president-elect, the just-concluded spiritual exercise has also helped Muslims to improve their moral character and refine their minds in pursuit of higher ideals for which there should be no turning back.
