Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed worry over the outcome of the presidential election which according to him, has deeply divided Nigeria.
In a Sallah message to Muslims on Thursday to mark the end of the Ramadan fasting, Abubakar noted that Nigeria needs harmony and peace.
Recall that the former vicepresident, was the first runner up to Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Tinubu secured 8,794,726 votes to defeat Abubakar, who got 6,984,520 votes, while Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) came a distant third with 6,101,533 votes.
Atiku however asked Muslims to join efforts toward building a more united Nigeria in light of the recent unfortunate bitter divisions caused by national politics.
Let me join other leaders in congratulating my fellow Muslims for successfully witnessing the end of this years Ramadan fasting period, a period that came with tough spiritual challenges designed to strengthen our Iman and Tawheed, Abubakar said.

During this period of selfdiscipline, we had seen the importance of abstention from all sinful acts that are in the overall interest of our spiritual life and happiness.
We must pray for God to enlarge His mercies and blessings upon the country.
Nigeria needs peace and harmony and we as citizens must ensure that we live our lives according to the pleasings of God.
God teaches us to eschew evils because its for our own ultimate good.
One of the greatest blessings of Ramadan is that it helps us to get closer to our Creator, strengthen our faith, and promote charity or the spirit of giving to the weak and poor.
