The chairman Christian Association of Nigeria in 19 Northern states and the federal capital territory, Rev Yakubu Pam  has tasked  Muslim leaders and faithful from the Northern states  to exhibit love, sacrifice and be their brothers keepers as they mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.

Northern CAN chairman in a press statement issued in Jos  yesterday and made available to  news men,  said  Muslim leaders in the North with their Christian counter parts  in the states  of the North and FCT have  one common task.

He added that they should use the occasion such as this  to preach the message of love and peace to their followers in a bid to create conducive atmosphere  in  Northern state for peace, mutual respect for one another and  to build a region devoid of crisis, killings and destruction of properties which the peace loving  people of the North have laboured to work for over the years.

According to him, Northern states are blessed with  natural resources that if tapped by the people of the zone and the government, would lead to development   of the states of the North and other parts of the country, saying, the  under-development  in the North would soon be a thing of the past if all hands are  put on deck to  build the Northern states for the overall benefit of all.

He  used the occasion to call on  the religious extremists in the North  especially  Boko haram extremists in the North – East states  of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states respectively  to lay down their arms and embrace peace so that the internally displaced persons  from the region can return back to their  homes that  they have abandoned  in recent years.
