Muslims join Christians to mark Lent in Kaduna

A large number of Muslims in Kaduna Thursday joined Christians at the home of a cleric, Pastor Yohanna Buru, to break the fast on

Pastor Buru is the General Overseer of Christ Evangelical Intercessory and Life Intervention Ministry, Sabon-Tasha, Kaduna.

Addressing the gathering,  Malam Rilwanu Abdullahi, National Chairman of Beyond the Border of Disability in Nigeria, said their presence was to promote unity and mutual coexistence among all Nigerians.

”The aim of joining our Christian counterparts to break their fast is in a bid to strengthen peaceful coexistence, religious tolerance and better understanding.

”God has already joined us together and therefore it is  important to always have the fear of God and put away malicious intentions because it will not take us anywhere,” Abdullahi said.

Also, Mallam Gamo Andbdullahi, Barnawa community youth leader in Kaduna, who represented his group, emphasised the importance of forgiveness among the people.

He stressed the need for continuous dialogue to address all issues likely to trigger violence in Kaduna state and Nigeria as a whole.
