Ramadan: Peter Obi breaks fast with 1,000 Muslims in Suleja, installs borehole at Central Mosque

In continuation of his nationwide tour during the sacred Ramadan season, Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, made a stop at the Barkin-Iku Suleja Niger State Central Mosque.

During his visit, Obi offered aid to approximately 100 individuals and broke the Ramadan fast with about 1000 devout Muslims.

Obi also installed a borehole to provide a reliable source of clean water at the Mosque.

He wrote on X:

”In continuation of my nationwide tour of identifying and sharing with the Muslim faithful during this sacred Ramadan season, I made a stop at the Barkin-Iku Suleja Niger State Central Mosque, located along the Suleja – Kaduna road in Niger State.

”It was a privilege to offer aid to about 100 individuals, break the Ramadan fast with about 1000 individuals, and share a meal with the devout Muslim community, fostering a spirit of togetherness and solidarity, while also addressing a critical societal need by installing a borehole.

”During this visit, I had the honour of listening to a Tafsir by the Chief Imam, who revealed the pressing needs of the community that has been deprived of a basic necessity for over three decades – a reliable source of clean water.

”I am thankful that this act of support was able to meet their need for the last 30 years and exemplify the core values of our movement – empathy, inclusivity, and a commitment to uplifting the lives of all citizens, regardless of creed or background.

”It is my fervent hope that this gesture will not only alleviate the immediate challenges faced by the community but also serve as a symbol of our unwavering dedication to the welfare and progress of every Nigerian.

”As we continue our journey, I am reminded of the profound significance of unity and compassion, especially during this holy month.”
