Cardinal John Onaiyekan has urged the government at all
levels to display zeal to ensure lasting peace in Nigeria.
NAN reports that Onaiyekan gave the counsel while addressing
participants at the 2020 Cardinal Onaiyekan Foundation for
Peace (COFP) event in Abuja on Tuesday.
The cleric advised religious leaders to preach against
fanaticism and extremism.
Onaiyekan expressed concern about corruption, bad
governance, insurgency, killings, and other problems
bedevilling Nigeria.
“In a world where extreme religious views and ideologies are
used to justify violence, crimes and insurgency, the roles that
religious leaders can play in countering such views, ideologies
and foster unity, understanding, mutual respect and
cooperation cannot be overestimated.
“Above all, I believe that lasting peace is possible when our governments show more commitment in addressing issues of social injustice,’’ he said.
Onaiyekan said he was convinced that interfaith cooperation and partnership were essential in advancing inclusive society.
He added that peace can only be achieved when Nigerians understand, respect and accept differences. Southern Kaduna killings: You’ll reap what you so
