President Muhammadu Buhari has stepped out for Eid-el-fitri prayers in celebration of the end of the 2019 Ramadan fasting period.
The president was accompanied by his son and other dignitaries to the praying ground.
Before stepping out for Eid-el-fitri prayers today, President Buhari in a message urged Muslim faithfuls to use religion as a force for good.
“The Ramadan period is meant to reinforce us spiritually. Therefore, we should use religion as an inspiration to do good at all times. The virtues of the Ramadan should be sustained beyond the celebration. Going back to bad ways after the Ramadan might defeat the essence of the message and lessons the fasting period was supposed to inculcate in the hearts and minds of the Muslim faithful,” he said.
The president also thanked all those who supported him by voting for him in the 2019 general election.
