Christian,Muslim leaders preach peach in Kwara

Posted: August 28, 2012 in General

A meeting of Christian and Muslim leaders in Kwara State with the Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Mike Omeri, has resolved that it is too late for Nigeria to break.

The meeting was tagged: “Special interactive session for leaders of all religious groups in the state on peace and stability.”

Their resolution includes condemning “all manner of violence against fellow Nigerians. Every religious leader in Nigeria should desist from preaching hate in their places of worship and that the unity of Nigeria is not in doubt.”

The NOA director general in his opening remark said though no Nigerian leader ever asked his followers to go to war against fellow Nigerians, they still owe it a duty to call such followers to order whenever they engage in acts inimical to the nation’s stability.

According to him, “the culture, tradition and languages of the country, particularly among our children have dissolved into themselves beyond any hope of the people to easily part ways.”

The duo of the Chairman of Kwara Inter-Religious Committee, Alhaji Shaba Koro and his Deputy, Chief Peter Olorunnisola (SAN) said the state has a habit of live and let live.

They highlighted efforts of their committee since it was constituted by the government to douse and resolve every religious dispute.

Similarly, the Chief Imam of Ilorin, Alhaji Mohammed Bashir, who spoke through a representative said the Holy Quoran said that no “Muslim will be accepted a believer if he hates or unleash terror on his neighbour.”
