A Jos-based philanthropist in plateau State, Engineer Huzaifa Ibrahim Abdullahi, has called on Muslims and Christians to continue to embrace one another for peace and tranquility to thrive in Jos and the state at large.

Engr Abdullahi made the call at the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), LCC Tahir, Jos, while donating N1m, as well as 2,000 nine-inch blocks for the continuation of the construction of the church’s permanent site.

He said, “I have noticed that people are worshipping under temporary zincs, and I felt that the church should be built having relocated from its old site to this site. For that reason, I decided to donate 2,000 pieces of nine-inch blocks, and an additional N1m to start construction at the new site.”

The philanthropist used the opportunity to call on people to stop discrimination on the basis of religion, advising that they should embrace one another for tranquility.

The pastor of the church, Rev John Manji, while praying to God to bless the donor, also expressed hope that the gesture would add value to peace and mutual understanding among the people.
