Kaduna CAN urges prayers against COVID-19
Christians Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State chapter, has felicitated with Muslims for the completion of this year’s Ramadan fast and celebration of Eid el-Fitr, urging them to pray against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
According to CAN, though the celebration of this year is amid lockdown as a result of COVID-19, “may the sacrifices made, the prayers offered and all the worship for the peace and progress of our state, nation and the whole of mankind be acceptable to God.”
In a goodwill message, the chairman, Reverend Joseph Hayab, stated, “This year’s Ramadan came at a very trying moment for the entire world, given the challenge posed by the spread of COVID-19. Despite the trying situation, we are glad that you did not allow the prevailing challenge to rob you of the joy and blessings of this holy month.
“We hopefully look forward to greater and more fruitful days together as we work to defeat the virus as well as promote peace, unity and harmonious coexistence in all our communities.”
Hayab said though medical experts had warned and governments advised people to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID 19, the stay-at-home order should not be seen as a hindrance to a strong fraternity.
“We may be socially and physically distancing ourselves from one another, but in our hearts and spirit, we are together, celebrating and rejoicing with all Muslim faithful.
“Amid the lockdown, CAN Kaduna State felicitates with all Muslims in the state and wish them a blessed and prosperous life after this Ramadan and Sallah.”
