CAN Rejoices With Muslims at Sallah




The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has felicitated with the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and all Muslims in the country as they celebrate this year’s Ramadan.

In a congratulatory message issued on Thursday by the General Secretary, Daramola Bade Joseph, CAN prayed that the aftermath of this year’s Ramadan will usher in peace and unity into the country.

“We are not unaware that your fasting was in obedience to the divine directive: ‘O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous’ — Surat Al-Baqarah 2:183. May God answer all your godly prayers offered throughout the month.

“We appeal to the leadership of NSCIA to continue to advise and caution the extremists who are not well-grounded in the faith and whose wicked and ungodly actions are giving bad names to Islam. It is trite to know that no godly person will engage in the promotion of violence, kidnapping, banditry and terrorism or identify with the perpetrators,” it said.

CAN said it recognises and appreciates the ‘efforts’ that are being made by the police and other security agencies towards ensuring peaceful celebrations.

It said that it will not relent in promoting religious tolerance, peace and unity in our country in collaboration with NSCIA genuinely.

“We remain partners in peacemaking. Let us continue working together for peace, unity and progress of the country.

“May God put His fears into the hearts of our leaders to promptly do what is right, justly and godly. We also pray that those who have compromised and are compromising the security in the country will have a change of mind and those who refused to change will be exposed and sanctioned by the Almighty God Himself,” CAN said.
