The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has congratulated the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and all Muslims in the country over the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan.
This is contained in a statement signed by the General Secretary of CAN, Joesph Bade Daramola in Abuja.
It also appeals to the leadership of NSCIA to continue to advise and caution extremists who are not well grounded in the faith and whose wicked and ungodly actions are giving bad names to Islam.
“It is right to know that no godly person will engage in the promotion of violence, kidnapping, banditry and terrorism or identify with the perpetrators” Daramola added.
The statement prays that the aftermath of this year’s Ramadan will usher in peace and unity into the country.
It also recognises and appreciates the ‘efforts’ that are being made by the Police and other security agencies towards ensuring peaceful celebrations.
According to the statement, Daramola prays God to put His fear 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” he stated.
The statement promises that CAN will not relent in promoting religious tolerance, peace and unity in the country in collaboration with NSCIA
