Millions of Muslim faithful in Nigeria are celebrating the festival of Eid-al-Fitri.
According to the President, it is noteworthy and delightful to see Christians breaking fast with Muslim faithful during the Ramadan.
The President added that in some instances he noticed how Christians sent goodwill and gifts to Muslims. So this model has also shown that Muslim groups join Christian festivities and this practice promote brotherhood and forgiveness.
HAPPY CELEBRATION TO YOU ALL.
