Spokesperson for the group, Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani is of the opinion that objective of the World Interfaith Harmony day was to donate gifts to other religions and improving relationship and unity among faiths.

“I attended the Church service and give my own donation like every christian just to encourage religious understanding and tolerance between Christians and Moslems for peaceful coexistence in the country and the world at large,” Tijjani said.

Hajiya Ramatu said both religions preach, peace, harmony, forgiveness and tolerance, pointing out that all come from one family of Adam and Eve and the need to understand one another.

Receiving the Bibles, the general overseer of the Church, Pastor Yohanna Buru expressed satisfaction with the donation and appealed to Christians and Moslems to learn how to tolerate, accommodate and live in peace with one another in order to make the country great and peaceful.
