Christians and Muslims are Not in Competition – Rev. Uja
The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Uja Tor Uja has stressed the need for Christians and Muslims to live in unity.
He disclosed this recently while playing host to the Executive Chairman of National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Alhaji Mukhtar Abdullahi in his office in Abuja.
In the words of the NCPC boss, “it is important to say that Christians and Muslims are not in competition, we are in cooperation”.
He added, “It is important for all Nigerians to learn the importance of cooperation”.
He explained that there was no need for social strife and unrest in the country, especially considering the harm that the Boko Haram insurgency has caused this nation.
He commended his guest for the achievement recorded during the just concluded 2017 Hajj operations. According to him, “we are very proud of what you achieved in 2017 Hajj”.
The NCPC Chief Executive reaffirmed that despite the high number of pilgrims, the Hajj Commission was able to effectively manage them without issues. He congratulated the NAHCON Chairman and his team for their giant strides. He also called on all the Muslims and Christians in the country to work for the progress and peace of Nigeria.
The Executive Secretary further stressed that “Nigeria is bigger than our local needs, “I will like Nigeria to be our agenda, a dream that we want to see”.
Rev. Uja further remarked, “I respect what you have achieved in Hajj, trusting God that you will achieve greater things.”
