Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Mis­bahu Bashir, Kaduna

The Arewa Con­sul­ta­tive Fo­rum (ACF) yes­ter­day fe­lic­i­tated with Chris­tians on the cel­e­bra­tion of Easter, call­ing for tol­er­ance and bet­ter un­der­stand­ing among re­li­gious groups.

Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary of ACF, Mo­hammed Ibrahim, urged all Nige­ri­ans to prac­tice the virtues of tol­er­ance, for­give­ness and sac­ri­fice.

He also called on people in po­si­tions of author­ity to re­mem­ber that the power given to them by God is tran­sient and make the best use of it for the es­tab­lish­ment of a so­ci­ety free of in­jus­tice, cor­rup­tion and other vices that have neg­a­tive ef­fect on de­vel­op­ment.

“Nige­ri­ans should also pray and work to­wards peace­ful co­ex­is­tence, har­mony and un­der­stand­ing for unity and progress,” he said.
