Ramadan: Nigerian Church Shares Packages of Foodstuff To Hundreds Of Poor Muslims, Destitute/Inmates & Widows In Kaduna

The Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry Sabon Tasha in Kaduna state North-western Nigeria has Distributed over 500 packages of Take-away varieties of food and drinks to the poor Muslims,
and among them were people with different forms of deformities, inmates and some widows with Food to break their Ramadan fast

The food donation was aimed at promoting peaceful co-existence between Muslims and Christians across the 36 states of Nigeria ,and to help the needy Muslims brother with food to eat when breaking their Ramadan at home with their families and to encourage them in praying for Nigeria

Pastor Yohanna Buru, is the general overseer of the church, that lead the delegation of Reverend, pastors, evangelist and church Elders to some Muslims communities for Ramadan food distribution in the states said “we must support our brothers and sisters with what to eat in this 30 days ,in view of the high cost of Food items in local market , so as to strengthening good relationship with Muslims, and promote religious Tolerance, better understanding among different faith base organization”

The cleric said, This is not the first time, the church is distributing foods stuffs to the needy Muslims in their holy sacred month of Ramadan, because last year, Over 1,000 packaged food and drinks were distributed to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), destitute and widows and some prison inmate in Kaduna state, and all this is to support the poor in breaking their fast with happiness and joy like any other Muslims across the planet

Buru pointed out clearly that, the reason why the church is helping the poor Muslims is because, “Both the Muslims and Christians were children’s of Adams and Eve “Biological parents”, Both Muslims and Christians believe in One God “Allah” both Muslims and Christians have holy books which are Bible and Qur’an, Both of them believed in life after death ,and both Believed in paradise and hell, so we are all brothers and sisters, therefore we must support each other to live in peace and harmony”

Additionally buru said ,the increase in the prices of food commodities at various markets has forced many Nigerians into difficulties, adding that most prices of food stuff and other commodities in the market have almost triple than the normal pricethat consumers usually buys at local markets

The negative attitude of Nigeria marketers in taking the advantage of the holy month by tripping the prices of good and services is not a welcome development in view of how Nigerians are claiming to be the most religious peoples in the universe.

The clerics then appeal to marketers to think and rethink of meeting with Almighty God and the consequences of tripling prices of Food Commodities in the market during the holy month Ramadan

“I know Almighty God is not really happy with the negative activities of Nigerian marketers on their attitudinal change and behavior for taking every opportunity in this holy sacred month to doubled prices of foodstuff thereby extortion from Muslims observing their fasting at this season”

Buru appealed to wealthy Muslims and Christians across the 36 states of Nigeria and government at all level to find means of assisting the poor ,most especially the widows and orphans with food to eat during this holy month of Ramadan for Allah blesses,

“God listen to the prayers of Widows, orphans and Destitutes, therefore let’s take this advantage of taking full care of them,so that when they eat,and then pray to God to Give us peace in the our country,peace that can end all forms terrorism activities in Africa”

Receiving the food item at the physically challenged person home at Kano road kaduna,mallam Wanbai Isa who is the representative of the chairman of blind association in kaduna expressed satisfaction over the continuous food donation year-by-year by the Christians to the disabled person which is usually by pastor yohanna

Mallam Wambai said every year during a season like,pastor yohanna buru and his members always remembered them and they usually comes to this house and donate plenty food item to our members,adding that its only God that can reward pastor yohanna buru for coming to see them every years without showing them any sign of discrimination or stigmatizing them
