He also urged Muslims to maintain and improve upon the self-restraint, self-denial, sacrifice and deep spiritual consciousness that accompanied the fasting period, to be better individuals and true worshippers.

He also assured Nigerians of the government’s commitment to the provision of security for the lives and property of every citizen and foreigner in the country.

Belgore emphasized that security was everyone’s responsibility and urged Nigerians to report any suspicious activities or persons to the N-Alert application.
