Why Nigerians must continue to live in peace–NOA

The Director-General of  the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr Garuba Abari, has called on Nigerians to  live in peace and unity irrespective of   religious  or cultural background.

Abari made the call in Osogbo on Thursday at a forum on  ‘ Peace Building Sensitisation  and Citizens’ Engagement.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the theme of the programme was  “ Building a  People of  Peace.’’

Abari  was represented by  Mrs Metteh Edekobi, the NOA  Director of  Special Duties and Operations.

The NOA boss, who noted that peace was crucial  to the prosperity and social economy of any nation, said Nigerians should avoid acts capable of disturbing the peace of the nation.

According to him, peace is important, if not more important than the mineral resources that the country derives wealth from.

” We are one and we have the duty to promote peace and national unity.

” The constitution enjoins that we should live in peace and unity.

” Love your neighbour is not a joke but a reality. We must ensure peace reigns  in our community,’’ he said.

Abari also urged religious leaders to spread  the message of  peace and unity in the country.

In his address, Gov. Rauf Aregbesola commended NOA for organising the  programme.

Represented by Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, the Secretary to the State Government, Aregbesola said Nigerians must continue to  live in peace and unity. (NAN)
