In a message on Sunday, the President urged Muslims to to commit to the essence of the period.
“It is a month of intense devotion and commitment to the principles of love, sacrifice and devotion to duty.
” I urge Muslims to strive to live by these values, and cloak the month of Ramadan in sanctity and holiness,” he said.
Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar for fasting, prayer and introspection.
