The meeting which took place yesterday at the JNI headquarters in Jos central mosque was attended by Hausa -Fulani community stakeholders and representatives of Igbo community in Jos.

The Chief Imam of Jos Central Mosque Sheikh Balarabe Dawud said “the meeting came at the right time because it will foster unity and understanding among different communities living in Jos, while assuring that Muslims will continue to cooperate with all ethnic groups that will help them to live in peace and harmony with one another for the development of the state”.

Sheikh Dawud recalled that during the First Republic political parties from the north usually aligned with Igbos because of the peaceful coexistence between Hausa Muslims and Igbo.  “ Igbo and Yoruba are known to be peaceful, they don’t even seek for Indigene certificate  from any state they live they only concentrate of their business” he added

The Chairman of Plateau State Igbo Community Mr Jude Chukwuka said Hausa and Igbo community are peace loving people and they are the worst hit during crises that kept recurring in Jos and appeal to the Muslims community to under stand that Igbo means peace and they are not interested in land but pursuing their business activities.

Mr Jude said Igbo communities closed their shops last Thursday to mourn their member who was slain by youths as a result of disagreement and suggested a regular meeting that will foster mutual understanding and peace between Hausa Muslims and the Igbo community at the end of every two weeks.
