Some Muslim and Christian clerics in Kaduna have formed a coalition to fight for a reduction in the price of rams,
Ahead of the Eid-El Kabiru celebration, Pastor Yohanna Buru, on Friday, toured some rams selling points in Kaduna metropolis,to prevail on the sellers to reduce the price of the animals.
He said the aim of the visit was to appeal to sellers to crash-down the prices of rams and other animals, to enable Muslims buy same to slaughter for Sallah.
According to him, the intervention has become necessary as the hike in price has made the animals beyond the reach of average Muslims.
Buru said apart from serving the purpose intended, such a delegation would enhance and strengthen Christians -Muslims relationships in the state.
Responding to the request of the team during a visit to one of the ram selling points, Chairman of Zango Ram Sellers, Musa Usman, thanked Buru who led a coalition of Muslim and Christian clerics for his compassion.
He however insisted that the price of ram in the market was still within the reach of average Muslims, just as he lamented that the prevailing security challenges had resulted in scarcity of domestic animals.
PlatinumPost recalled that Buru had during Ramadan mobilised 50 Muslims and Christian scholars to visit markets, calling on marketers to cut down price of goods and services.
