Some Christians in the northern state of Kaduna have reportedly eaten with their Muslim counterparts after breaking their fast on Saturday.

According to Daily Trust, this act was coordinated by the minister of Youths and Sports, Barrister Solomon Dalung who led a team of 20 Christian clerics to meet Muslim clerics including Shiekh Dahiru Bauchi.

In a chat with journalists after the event, Dalung explained that the reason for the meeting was to strengthen inter-religious harmony and promoting peaceful co-existence among different faith organization in Nigeria.

“This is the fourth year we have been coming to Kaduna with many Christian clerics including Reverend fathers, pastors,evangelist and other top Christian leaders from northern Nigeria to break fast with Shiekh Dahiru Bauchi at his resident and to mix and interact with other top muslims scholars, so as to promote peace and encourage religious tolerance, and to show Nigerians that we are all created by one God”Allah” and Adam and Eve were our original parent.

“We want the muslims scholar to keep on praying for ever lasting peace in the country and also pray for rapid socio-political and economic development especially at this trying time when our country is facing a lot of difficulties including militancy, insurgency and economic downturn,” the ‘comrade’ minister said.

Speaking also on the importance of the joint meeting, Pastor Yohanna Buru, one of the clerics who visited the Muslims, asked them to use the last ten days of Ramadan to pray seriously for the continued peace and harmony of the different faiths in Nigeria.

Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi who responded on behalf of the Muslim faithful, described Christians as good friends to them, while calling on fellow scholars from both faiths to reignite their prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari, especially for the unity of the country.

While urging Nigerians to be patient with the president’s new policies, Bauchi stated: “Every thing will soon be in other‎ by the grace of God.”

Meanwhile, Reverend Olasupo Ayokunle, the newly-elected president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has called for religious balance and tolerance in the country.

In an interview with The Punch, the CAN president urged the president to maintain religious balance so as not to open the door for lawlessness.

“I want to advise the present government to maintain balance and keep close to constitution irrespective of the religious belief of those in government. The government should respect the constitution of Nigeria because if the government breaks the constitution of Nigeria on religion alone, they have already opened the door for lawlessness in the society.”

He advised Islamic religious leaders to call their followers to order as some of them were not giving them honour with their actions.
