Eid-al-Fitri: CAN urges intensified prayers for country on celebration

The Christian Association of Nigeria( CAN) has called on all Nigerians to use the Eid-el-Fitri festival to pray for Nigeria and Nigerians.

This is contained in a statement signed by the President of CAN, Archbishop Daniel Okoh on Friday in Abuja.

Okoh said Ramadan was a time of self-reflection and renewed commitment to living a life of piety and peace, adding that Islam and Christianity shared a lot of good virtues in common.

“We extend our warmest greetings and felicitations to the President-General of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, and the entire Muslim Ummah in Nigeria.

” We rejoice with them and pray that the blessings of God will be with them now and always.

“Ramadan teaches us the importance of sacrifice, compassion, and generosity toward others, especially the less privileged in our society.” 

He said as Muslims marked the important occasion, they  must take the opportunity to reflect on the lessons of Ramadan and the values that it teached, which were love for one another and mutual understanding for a peaceful society.

“Islam and Christianity share a lot of good virtues  and we must use our understanding of the Holy Books to promote inclusivity, and work toward building a more tolerant and egalitarian society for us all.”

“CAN joins Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and around the world to celebrate the Eid-el-Fitri festival, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.”
