He said, “The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) joins our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and around the world to celebrate the Eid-ul-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.

“Ramadan is a time of self-reflection and a renewed commitment to living a life of piety and peace. It teaches us the importance of sacrifice, compassion, and generosity towards others, especially the less privileged in our society
“As we mark this important occasion, we must take the opportunity to reflect on the lessons of Ramadan and the values that it teaches us which are love for one another and mutual understanding for a peaceful society.

“As we celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitri festival, we call on all Nigerians to use this occasion to pray for our beloved country, for peace, and for the prosperity of all our people. Once again, congratulations to our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria”, the president said.
