Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state has called on Nigerians to use the opportunity of the Holy month of Ramadan to prioritise the plight of the needy by using their wealth to ease the pains suffered by the people.
A commemorative message, directed especially at adherents of the Islamic faith on Ramadan fast, issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal further observed that by taking care of the poor, the vulnerable and the less-privileged, the society is doing itself lots of favours.
Urging Muslims to intensify prayers for peace, unity and stability of the country, Governor stressed that the holy month provides opportunity for increased worship, strengthening of family ties and doing away with bad habits.
“We should use this period to love one another and make sacrifices for the overall growth and development of our nation,” Tambuwal added.
