El-ru­fai com­mends com­mu­nity for sus­tain­able peace

The Punch - - NEWS -

Kaduna State Gov­er­nor Nasir el-ru­fai has com­mended the Moro’a com­mu­nity in the Kaura Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of the state for keep­ing peace in the face of in­se­cu­rity that be­dev­illed the area in re­cent past.

El-ru­fai, who gave the com­men­da­tion at the 2020 An­nual Moro’a Cul­tural Fes­ti­val held at Man­chok on Satur­day, said the peace­ful dis­po­si­tion of the com­mu­nity, in no small way, helped to re­store nor­malcy to the area.

The gov­er­nor, rep­re­sented by the Care­taker Com­mit­tee Chair­man of the Kaura Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area, Dr Katukah Ayuba, con­grat­u­lated the com­mu­nity on the cul­tural fes­ti­val and called on them to im­bibe the val­ues therein.

“I urge the Moro’a com­mu­nity to sus­tain the cul­tural fes­tiv­ity and sup­port gov­ern­ment’s poli­cies which are all tar­geted to­wards the well-be­ing of the peo­ple,” the News Agency of Nige­ria quoted the gov­er­nor as say­ing.

The key­note speaker at the event, Prof Rose Nkom, chal­lenged the or­gan­is­ers to reg­u­larly hold the event not just to ful­fil all right­eous­ness but to use it to ad­dress the chal­lenges be­dev­illing the peo­ple.
