Cleric calls for lasting peace in Southern Kaduna

By Hassana Yakubu

A Kaduna based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) –  Peace Revival and Reconciliation Foundation- has expressed its commitment to lasting peace in Southern Kaduna.

The Founder of the NGO, Pastor Yohanna Buru, made the remark in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Monday.

Buru said the NGO had embarked on fact-finding missions in various chiefdoms in Southern Kaduna.

“We met with some Fulani people in Jaba chiefdom on fact-finding mission in order to bring lasting peace in the area.

“We met the Chief of Jaba, Malam Danladi Maude and top leaders in Jaba land and we discussed how to bring peace to Southern Kaduna,’’ he said.

According to him, the traditional ruler of Jaba, spoke on the importance of peace, tolerance as key to socioeconomic and political development of any society.

“Peace and tolerance are two essential ingredients for promoting societal growth which should be encouraged by every right-thinking individual living in any community,’’ Buru said.

He said that the chief of Jaba also warned that violence and other negative tendencies would not yield any fruitful result, but rather frustrate and drag the society back.

He also appealed to the state government to rehabilitate bad roads in the area.

Buru said that Muslims, Christians and traditionalists had been living in peace and harmony for many years.

He lauded people of the chiefdom for promoting peace among the different tribes and religions in the area, and advised them to sustain the tempo.

Buru urged other traditional rulers in Southern Kaduna to promote peace “to end all forms of ethno-religious and political killings in the area”.

He commended the state and Federal Government for deploying a large number of security personnel to maintain peace in the area.

Buru called on all youth organisations, religious and traditional leaders,as well as women groups to support the government in promoting peace and unity in the entire Southern Kaduna.

“We are hoping to pay courtesy visits to all Chiefdoms in the entire Southern Kaduna for the purpose of encouraging peaceful co-existence,’’ he said.

Buru also expressed satisfaction with the response received by the foundation during the peace tour. (NAN)
