Mrs Buhari made the appeal on Thursday through her social media handle ” Instagram” in Abuja.
She explained that whatever the little assistance one offers to the community during the month of Ramadan will have reward.
“Any little deed during this month of Ramadan is an act of worship that has multiplying effect, life is more meaningful when you impact positivity on other people’s lives.
“It’s all about worth, feeling and adding value to make others feel life is worth living; Keeping by other people’s expectations is one essence of living that will lead to an everlasting legacy when we are no more,” she said.
The wife of the president also appealed to wealthy individuals in Nigeria to redouble their efforts towards assisting the less privileged persons, especially women and children in the crisis areas.
