Ribadu admonishes Muslims to Imbibe the lessons of Ramadan
Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, CAN in the 2011 election, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has admonished Muslims in the country to live by the lessons of the holy month of Ramadan.
Ribadu in Sallah message issued by his media aide, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, in Abuja Wednesday, stated that the lessons of piety, compassion, and tolerance learnt from the month-long worship should not be discarded with the passage of the month.
According to him, the essence of the Ramadan fasting was to cleanse both body and soul, maintaining that leaving behind the teachings of Ramadan once the worship is over defeats the purpose of the worship.
The former anti-corruption czar, further charged Muslims to translate the virtues of piety and tolerance from Ramadan to the larger Nigerian society so as to deepen religious tolerance, understanding and charity for the needy.
Mr. Ribadu urged Muslims to use the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitr to pray for Nigeria to overcome security and other challenges currently facing it.
