The minister also emphasised the need to sustain the virtues of giving, sharing, sacrifices, supplications and showing compassion not only to fellow Muslims but also to non-Muslim neighbours as they did during the month.

He assured Nigerians of the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to peace and security in the country.

Mr Magashi thanked the civil populace for supporting the military at all times and also appealed to Nigerians to be security conscious during and after the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.
