Taraba monarch calls for understanding among his subjects

The Chief of Ibi  chiefdom in Taraba State, Alhaji Abubakar Salihu Danbawuro, has called on his subjects to continue to live in peace to ensure rapid development of the area.

He made  the call  while speaking during an inter faith dialogue between Christians and Muslims in Ibi, which was organised by the Foundation for Peace and Conflict Management.

The monarch stressed the need for more understanding among followers of the two major religions in the chiefdom adding that it was common among his subjects to see  brothers and sisters of the same parents being adherents of  either Christianity or Islam.

Alhaji Abubakar Danbawuro stated that both Christianity and Islam encourage peace, love and cordial relationship and therefore urged his subjects to always abide by the teaching of their religion to ensure harmony among them.

“I urged  all the participants of this important peace dialogue  to please take the message of peace and understanding to your various communities,” the monarch said.

The Chairman of Ibi Local Government Council, Bala Bako, stressed the need for lasting peace in the area.

“Only peace can bring the desired socio-political and economic development in our community and therefore we should collectively work for permanent peace,” the chairman said.

The chairman commended the foundation for initiating the peace dialogue among people of the chiefdom and urged followers of the two major religions to support the foundation in its resolve to finding lasting peace in the area.

The President of Foundation for Peace, Hope and Conflict Management, Rev. Father Anthony Ibrahim Bature, said only fairness, accountability and justice to all Nigerians by leaders at all levels will ensure peace in  the country.

Rev. Anthony Ibrahim, said the meeting became necessary to bridge the gap between the diverse cultural and religious communities and to improve the living conditions of internally displaced persons.
