While wishing them rewarding Ramadan fasting, Senator Buhari admonished Muslims in Oyo North and over the country to cultivate the act of giving to the less privileged in their societies and make them happy at all times.
“We came to this world with nothing and we are going to live with nothing, so let us all try to touch as many lives as possible in this Holy month so that we can enjoy the most gracious reward of Aljannat Firdaous Allah promises the believers on the day of accountability,” Senator Buhari preached.
