Mbam urged Nigerians to reflect on the significance of Ramadan by loving and caring for one another.
He said Nigerians should be their brothers’ keepers so that the country can experience peace and harmony.
He also observed that the holy month of Ramadan was a period for sober reflections, charity, moral rearmament and spiritual rejuvenation.
