Ramadan is a holy month in Islam when Muslims fast from dawn until sunset. It’s a time for spiritual reflection, self-discipline, and increased devotion to prayer and charity. Beyond abstaining from food and drink, Ramadan encourages acts of kindness, empathy, and self-improvement. It’s a special time for community bonding and strengthening one’s connection with Allah. Through fasting, Muslims aim to purify their souls, deepen their faith, and cultivate gratitude for blessings in their lives.

He emphasized that it was their expectation for civil servants to use the fasting period to pray for the peace and economic prosperity of the state and Nigeria as a whole.
