The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has described the Eid-El-Kabir festival as a time for sober reflection and submission to the will of God.

    if you are depending on allah, who is BH claiming that they are fighting for? Pastor Ayo remain and is ever innocent of the $9.3m case, that why he is still continuing today. He has nothing to do with that. Allow him to wish the innocent muslims their Eid-El-Kabir celebration, not those behind BH and the $9.3m setup. We know what is going on, just a matter of time, the BH and their sponsors destroying lives and properties in this country will soon be brought to an end. You will see!
