The 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed his thoughts for Nigerians as the Ramadan fasting begins.

In an official statement released on his verified Facebook account on Monday, the former vice-president urged Nigerians to use the Ramadan period to rededicate themselves to the virtues of Prophet Mohammed (SAW) and pray for Nigeria and its people.

“I call on one and all to remember that Nigerians are who would make Nigeria either great or dismal through our thoughts, words and actions. Therefore, Ramadan is an opportunity for us to rededicate ourselves to the virtues displayed by the Prophet.”

“When we make ideals our goal this Ramadan, we will, by Allah’s grace, be able to reach a turning point in our individual, family and national lives that will bring about the rebirth of Nigeria as a nation that functions to provide peace, progress and prosperity to each and every citizen.”

Alhaji Atiku also reiterated the need for Nigerians to use the fasting period of Ramadan to build discipline, abstinence, prayer and self-sacrifice so that Allah (SWT) may “hear our prayers and see us through so that we will finish what we started today in good health and a sound body.”

He went further in the statement to explain the importance of Ramadan, stating that it will help to make our resolve stronger and weaken our challenges.

“Some of our challenges may look like they will overwhelm us, but during the month of Ramadan, our connection and reconnection with Allah (SWT) makes our resolve stronger and our challenges weaker. We are thus able to gain a new lease of life and a powerfully divine paradigm of possibilities over impossibilities. This is the beauty of Ramadan.” Alhaji Atiku said in the statement.
