Monarch seeks peace, unity in South­ern Kaduna

The tra­di­tional ruler of Ham Chief­dom, Kpok Ham Dan­ladi Gyet Maude, has asked res­i­dents of his chief­dom to shun vi­o­lence and em­brace peace.

The Kpok Ham stated at an In­ter­faith Prayer and In­ter­na­tional Peace Day pro­gramme or­ga­nized by Chris­tian As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (CAN) and Jama’atu Nas­ril Is­lam (JNI) in part­ner­ship with Global Peace Foun­da­tion and In­ter­faith Me­di­a­tion Cen­ter, at his palace in Kwoi, head­quar­ters of Jaba Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area in Kaduna State.

Speak­ing at the ses­sion, Sheikh Hal­liru Maraya and Rev­erend John Hayab, from Global Peace Foun­da­tion lamented how Nige­ri­ans, who flock churches and fill mosques, ended up in killing each other in an avoid­able cri­sis. A former gov­er­nor of Gombe State, Se­na­tor Muham­mad Dan­juma Goje, has said he has not anointed any can­di­date in to­mor­row’s gov­er­nor­ship pri­mary elec­tions of the All Pro­gres­sives Con­gress (APC).

Speak­ing with news­men on Fri­day at his Gombe res­i­dence, he said he is ready to sup­port any of the nine gu­ber­na­to­rial as­pi­rants that will emerge vic­to­ri­ous af­ter the elec­tion.

Goje, who rep­re­sents Gombe Cen­tral Se­na­to­rial District at the Na­tional Assem­bly, de­scribed as false and mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion that he is sup­port­ing one of the as­pi­rants.
