The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has called on Christians and Muslims in the country to work together.
Abubakar, who also is the President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, noted that the union would help bring an end to insecurity, intolerance, corruption and other ills in Nigeria.
The Emir stated this in his Easter message to Christians, on Sunday and was contained in a statement signed by NSCIA Director of Administration, Yusuf Nwoha.
The monarch also lamented that the Coronavirus pandemic was affecting religious worship.
“As people of faith, we’re conscious of the importance of Easter in the lives of Christians, especially as it symbolises rebirth, renewal and reawakening.”
“The significance of Easter cannot even be more compelling than now that the whole world is facing the devastating consequences of the coronavirus pandemic which impacts on our lifestyle and religious worship,” he said.
This is coming at the time the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases stands at 323.
