The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged Nigerians to utilize this year’s Eid el-Fitr as an opportunity to pray for peace and prosperity throughout the nation.
In his message congratulating Muslims on Eid-el-Fitri, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), made the call on Friday.
“The CAN joins our 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.
“We extend our warmest greetings and felicitations to the President-General of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) 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,” Okoh said.
