The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Alfred Adewale Martins  has congratulated Muslims in Nigeria for a successful completion of this year’s Ramadan fast.

The religious association called on Muslims in every part of the country to utilize the spiritual significance of the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the gains of Ramadan which is also regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam to pray for a speedy end to the incessant terrorist attacks on innocent Nigerians across the nation.

The Secretary General of CAN, Musa Asake in an interview with Vanguard thanked God for the success of the fasting and prayers offered during the period, reminding the Nigerian Muslims that Sallah period is a time to reflect on the benefits of the month long spiritual exercise.

Rev. Asake said, “They should keep the blessings of Ramadan and all that the Quran teaches especially the need for peaceful co-existence with everybody irrespective of creed and ethnicity. While we wish the best during this Eid-el-Fitri celebration we pray that they will continue their prayers for an end to the continued terrorist attacks in parts of the country.”

Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Adewale Martins also called on Muslim faithful in the country to utilize the spiritual gains of the holy month of Ramadan to pray for the speedy end to the incessant terrorist attacks on innocent lives across the nation

Archbishop Martins, while felicitating with Muslims on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr, which marks the end of fasting, urged them to continue to spread the message of peace and harmony in line with the tenets of their religion, so as to help counter the hate messages of terrorists who use the name of the Islamic religion to perpetuate violence.
