The Abuja Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Thursday night broke the Lenten fast with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa.

Chairman of Abuja CAN, Israel ?Akanji led the delegation, whichj included prominent Christian clerics of different denominations in the Federal Capital.

Akanji told reporters afterwards that the Christian leaders were impressed with the sacrificial attitude of the President in conceding defeat to General Buhari in the just concluded presidential elections.

Such display of maturity and sacrifice of personal ambition on the altar of national unity and peace tallied with the message of Easter, as Jesus sacrificed himself for the redemption of mankind, said Akanji.

He pointed out that although Jonathan lost the election, he has therefore emerged as a hero that Christians would be proud of.

Governor Sule Lamido? of Adamawa state was also at the Aso Rock to meet with the President on Thursday night.
