Nigeria: Ramadan - Jonathan Tasks Muslims On Tolerance, Fairness

As Muslims begin their holy month of Ramadan, President Goodluck Jonathan, Saturday tasked them to imbibe the virtues of piety, tolerance and fairness to all.

This was contained in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati.

He equally urged Nigerians not to succumb to despair, but to remain steadfast in the firm conviction that with courage, determination, focus, decisiveness and collective support for the Armed Forces and security agencies, the country will ultimately overcome the evil agents of sectionalism, sectarianism and international terrorism who seek to disunite the nation.
