On Wednesday, the Bauchi State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) congratulated the state’s Muslim population on Eid-ul-Kabir and urged Christians to use the occasion to continue praying for Nigeria’s and the state’s, peace and progress.
These are included in the Christian organization’s message of goodwill, which is signed by Reverend Dr. Abraham Damina Dimeus, the state chairman.
The group commended the state’s governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, and other devout Muslims in the state, expressing the hope that their sacrifices would bring about the state’s long-needed peace and harmony.
The CAN chairman noted that only when there is protection of lives and property can the state and its citizens experience peace, growth, and development. He urged Muslims to use the holiday to intensify their prayers for an end to insecurity and for the peace of the state.
On behalf of the state’s entire Christian community, Rev. Dimeus congratulated the Governor, Sen. Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir, and the vast majority of Muslims on this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, a time when sacrifices are made to Allah.
The pastor also urged everyone in the state to keep praying for abundant harvests at the conclusion of the current farming season.
The CAN chairman thanked Governor Mohammed for fostering a sense of community among all residents of the state, regardless of their beliefs or political affiliations, and pleaded with him to complete the association’s multipurpose secretariat in the state as well as build a new Christian cemetery.
