Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Abok Ayuba, on Tuesday, called on Muslims to ensure peaceful coexistence in the state and emphasised the benefits of peaceful co-existence.
He also called on both religious adherents to be their brothers’ keeper, by avoiding anything capable of destroying the relative peace currently enjoyed in the state.
Ayuba who was represented by his Special Adviser, Sanusi Nyam, made the call at an education fund-raising by the Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’Ikamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS).
“The need for continuous unity and understanding amongst both Muslims and Christians is significant to the development of the state.”
He said through religious organisations, people can understand the importance of peace and unity in every society, adding that religious bodies should continue to educate their followers on “togetherness, tolerance, and oneness”.
“Education is an important thing to every human development, it is with it that people get to understand themselves”, he stressed.
