Speaking in a congratulatory message to all Muslims on the celebration of Eid El Fitr to mark the end of the Ramadan fast, Buhari appealed to the rich to share the same values they practiced during the holy month, by donating to the poor.

Buhari encouraged all Nigerians to unite and show compassion towards each other regardless of religion, tribe or political inclinations.

He also reaffirmed his commitment to the fight against corruption saying that his administration would employ every legal option to eradicate a culture of corruption in Nigeria and made assurances that peace would be restored to the Niger Delta region.

Naij reported that Officials have extended Ramadan to Thursday due to the non-sighting of the new moon.

Muslims have been urged to continue the Eid prayers on Wednesday following a claim made by Sokoto Sultan Alhaji Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar III, stating that the new moon had not been sighted as of Monday night.
