CAN Rejoices With Sultan, Muslims at Sallah

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) rejoices with Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and the entire Muslims as they celebrate this year Eid-el-Fitr.

CAN congratulates our Muslims, brothers and sisters on the end of the Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, the month during which Muslims around the world fast from dawn to sunset.

Since the month, among other things, aims to purify the soul and bring the individual closer to God, we urge you all to abide with the teaching and the principles of Ramadan in your daily activities.

We know that it is those who fight and kill on religion basis that are largely responsible for the unending killings and abductions in the country. It is these pseudo-Muslims who are slaughtering fellow human beings and who burn down worship and market places, all in the name of God who is peace personified. We are praying for their repentance.

The CAN leadership will not cease having dialogues on peace  and unity with the leadership of NSCIA at the forum provided for us by the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC).

In the same vein, we call on the Federal government to reconsider the de-radicalizing and rehabilitating of the arrested and the surrendered terrorists simply because it seems the programme considered laudable is becoming counterproductive.

Once again, CAN rejoices with our Muslim counterparts and we pray that their prayers and restraints during the month will not be in vain.

Happy Eid-el-Fitr.

Barka Da Sallah.

CAN FELICITATES WITH SULTAN, MUSLIMS AT EID-EL-MAULUD CELEBRATIONS

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) felicitates with the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and all Muslims in the country on the occasion of this year Moulid an-Nabi, the birthday of Prophet Mohammed (SAW).

We send the best wishes to our Muslim brothers and sisters from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on this year’s occasion of the birth of Prophet Mohammed (SAW).  His birth has given them  the power of peaceful co-existence, code of conduct and boldness to live holy lives here on earth and assurance to enter into paradise here after without any hindrance.

CAN felicitates with his Eminence, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, the Sultanate Council, all the Muslim leaders, and all Muslims nationwide.

We seize this opportunity to urge the government at all levels to double their efforts in stopping the menace of terrorism and all banditry in Nigeria. The government must exercise the political will and pave way to the end of insurgency in the country.

We rejoice with you all and pray that God will continue to keep us one in His love, benevolence and mercy. It is also our prayer that the good Lord will bring back peace and tranquillity to this country, bind us together as one nation and improve our economic growth and development.

Long live Nigeria.

Long live the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA)

Long live Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Happy Celebrations.

Signed.
