Shun Religious Bigotry, CAN Urges
The Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has urged Muslims and Christians to shun religious bigotry so as to make Nigeria a greater country in the comity of nations.
Secretary of the chapter, Rev. Sunday Ibrahim, made the call when he received gift items donated by some advocates of inter-faith harmony led by Hajiya Maryam Abubakar in Kaduna on Tuesday.
He commended the initiative of Hajiya Maryam and her colleagues, saying that it would go a long way toward promoting religious harmony in Kaduna State in particular and the entire country.
While expressing gratitude for the item, the Cleric said, “We are really grateful seeing Muslim women coming to the CAN’s Secretariat to donate Christmas gifts.
“This is really impressive and these are some of the ways to boost religious tolerance and better understanding between Muslims and Christian.
“We must join hands together in tackling religious extremism and promote forgiveness, peace and unity among all the people of Nigeria.”
