Some Christian clerics have joined their Muslim counterparts to celebrate Eid-el-Maulud, the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, at the Kaduna Stadium.
The general overseer of Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention Ministry, Pastor Yohanna Buru, led the coup of church leaders to the event yesterday.
He said the gesture was aimed at fostering peaceful coexistence, inter-religious tolerance, and a deeper understanding between Muslims and Christians in the country.
Buru emphasised that the Maulud celebration provided an opportunity for Christians and Muslims to come together, interact, engage in dialogue, and exchange ideas, all with the shared goal of promoting peace and unity in Nigeria.
Accompanied by Pastors George John, Maxwell Sanda, Gabriel Stephen and Rowland Sanda, he emphasised on the importance of celebrating together to promote peace and harmony in the country.
“We must remember that we were all created by one God, and we are the children of Adam and Eve. We both have our holy scriptures, the Bible and the Qur’an, from one God, guiding us on how to live in peace and harmony with each other,” Pastor Buru emphasized.
While delivering a speech at the gathering on promoting peace and unity, he called on people of different tribes and religions to embrace one another and exhibit love and forgiveness to move the country ahead.
At the event, Imam Muhammad Salisu, an Islamic scholar, lauded the annual tradition of tens of thousands of Muslims celebrating Maulud at the stadium.
He said celebrating Maulud with Christian leaders had become a cherished tradition that promoted peace and unity in the country. (NAN)
