The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) rejoices with Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), and the entire Muslims as they celebrate this year Eid-el-Fitri celebration.
The National CAN’s General Secretary Barrister Joseph Bade Daramola also called on the Federal government to reconsider the de-radicalizing and rehabilitating of the arrested and the surrendered terrorists simply because it seems the program considered laudable is becoming counterproductive.
He added that the leadership will not cease having dialogues on peace and unity with the leadership of NSCIA at the forum provided by the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC).
“We know that it is those who fight and kill on a religious basis that is largely responsible for the unending killings and abductions in the country. It is these pseudo-Muslims who are slaughtering fellow human beings and who burn down worship and market places, all in the name of God who is peace personified.”
“We congratulate our Muslims, brothers, and sisters on the end of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, the month during which Muslims around the world fast from dawn to sunset.
Since the month, among other things, aims to purify the soul and bring the individual closer to God, we urge you all to abide by the teaching and the principles of Ramadan in your daily activities.”
