Dalung Calls For Peace among Muslims ,Christians …Breaks Fast with Sheikh Bauchi in Kaduna 



Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung has called for national integration and peaceful co-existence in the country, charging Muslims and Christians to see each as one, from the same creator and a common ancestor.

He made the call in Kaduna on Monday night, after the traditional breaking of fast alongside other prominent Christian leaders at the resident of top Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi in Kaduna.

Dalung explained that for the past five years, he and other Christians have always been welcomed by Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, his family and friends to Iftar (breaking of fast), where they share their meal and jokes together building mutual trust and love.

He said that not only Nigeria, but other religiously or ethnic troubled parts of the world can learn from this experience and let the entire earth be lit up by love.

Barrister Dalung also used the opportunity to remind Nigerians to keep praying for President Muhammadu Buhari’s speedy recovery, so that he can  continue with the good works he has started.

He thanked Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi for his hospitality, while charging Nigerians to emulate such noble gestures.

Earlier during an interaction with journalists during the event, he lamented the poor welfare accorded the workers of the fourth estate of the realm, while charging owners of media houses to put smiles on faces of media practitioners through good incentives.

In his remarks, the host, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi thanked the minister and those that accompanied him .

He said that Almighty Allah in his infinite mercy has kept them alive to witness this year’s Ramadan and share in its abundant blessings.

The revered clergy prayed for peace and unity of Nigeria, adding that it would translate to progress and economic vibrancy.

While contributing, a Kaduna based  Christian cleric, Pastor Yohanna Buru, appealed for restraint in choice of words by politicians, groups and individuals.

He said that at a time like this, what is needed most are prayers and expressing optimism that Nigeria would soon come out of the woods.
