Eid-el-Kabir: Pray for nation’s economic recovery, CAN urg

Most Reverend Bulus Yohanna, Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in Niger State, called on Nigerians to pray earnestly for the swift recovery of the nation's economy. 

He made this plea in a congratulatory message to the Muslim community in Minna on the occasion of Eid-el Kabir.

Reverend Yohanna emphasized the current high prices of commodities, particularly foodstuffs, in the market, underscoring the need for intense prayers for divine intervention from God.

“This is why I am urging muslim faithful in Niger and Nigeria as a whole to use the Eid-el-Kabir period for sober reflection and prayer for peace, unity, and economic recovery.

“I hereby appeal to Muslims to pray for the country’s challenges to be overcome.

“We should, as Nigerians, be encouraged and have hope in God for the transformation of the country,” he said.

He commended the Niger state government’s efforts to address security and economic issues.

According to him, there’s a need for continued tolerance, synergy, and cooperation among government, agencies and citizens toward overcoming the challenges.

The chairman also called for improved healthcare, youth and women empowerment, investment in education, and addressing socio-economic challenges.

He, however, wished the Muslim community a peaceful and joyous Eid-el Kabir celebration.
