Chairman of the Taraba State Interreligious affairs, peacebuilding and conflict resolution Caleb Ahima has tasked members of the committee to work at establishing lasting legacies for peace and unity in the society.
Caleb Ahima, who was speaking with our correspondent at the office of the Secretary to the State Government in Jalingo, pray God to enable them to succeed.
He stated that no religion can claim righteousness since there are bad eggs among Christians and Muslims, hence the need for people of the state to repent and tolerate one another for the sake of unity.
The Chairman stressed that since the State Government has placed a high premium on achieving lasting peace in the state, it would be unethical for anyone to thwart his efforts.
Caleb Ahima revealed that the heterogeneous nature of the state has made it prone to religious and communal crisis challenging people of the state to distance themselves from a dastardly act.
He assured the state Government and people of their resolve to adopt a holistic approach to broker peace and unity mostly to those aggrieved.
The Chairman thanked the state Government for carefully selecting members of the committee drawn from the Christian and Muslim faith.
