Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, NCPC, Rev Yakubu Pam has tasked Nigerians on inter- faith harmony and the need to embrace peace in the new year irrespective of their religious differences.

Rev Pam said this  in Jos during a fund raising event for the completion of Ibn Mas’ud permanent site school Gangare, Jos North for the less privileged.

He urged Nigerians to learn to live in peace and harmony with one another and should be able to tolerate one another irrespective of their religious , political and ethnic differences.

This was contained in a press release signed by Celestine Toruka, Head, Media and Public Relations NCPC, made available to Daybreak today.

According to the release the NCPC boss who was one of the Special Guests of Honour at the event said he was happy to see that Plateau State was gradually retuning back to its peaceful days. He said,” We must forget the urgly incident of the past”. He added, “today, a new dawn has just begun in the city of Jos.”

Speaking to a teeming Muslim community, he said that COVID19 pandemic is real  but God had been able to mitigate it in Nigeria hence the impact of the Virus is less compared to other countries.

He posited that it was because of the prayers of the people that God stopped the global pandemic from killing us massively.

The Ambassador of peace affirmed that there was no alternative to peace; stating that we cannot talk of peace without justice.

He thanked the organisers of the laudable event which is aimed at addressing the educational needs of the less privileged Muslims in the

Gangare community in Jos North.

Rev.Pam decried religious fanatism in our society, stressing that it had become one of the banes of our society today.

He urged them to embrace peace and shun violence because God is a perfect God who never made any mistake in His creation by making us Muslims or Christians.
