The Catholic Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, CAMPAN, would join Nigerian Muslims to celebrate this year’s Eid el-Kabir on Friday, its National President, Patrick Osu, said on Thursday.
Mr Osu, who made this known in a statement in Abuja, urged Muslims and Nigerians, in general, to use the period to pray for the unity and peace of Nigeria and shun hate campaigns.
He said Muslims should also use the period and beyond to preach and spread love, peace, unity and togetherness, adding that “in unity, we are stronger as a nation.
“We must not allow anything to divide us, but learn to live together as one indivisible country no matter our diverse ethnic groups.
“We pray that Allah will hear the prayers and supplications of Muslims from Nigeria currently on holy pilgrimage in the Holy Land of Makkah for peace to continue to reign in the country and among Nigerians.
“We also pray that Allah in His mercy and compassion will bring them back home in good health of mind, body and soul.”
