AGAINST the backdrop of pervasive communal crises and other security challenges in the country, the District Head of Wakama Village of Nasarawa-Eggon Local Government Area of Nasarawa State Chief Peter Angbazo has appealed for peaceful co-existence among Nigeria’s diverse entities.
Angbazo made the call yesterday in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Wakama Village.

He said that no nation could develop without peace, hence the need for all Nigerians to embrace one and other, irrespective of differences in religion, tribe or political party.

He further urged the people to intensify prayers for the restoration of peace to the North-East.

“Nigerians should not relent in offering prayers for peace in the North-East and Nigeria as the Federal Government intensifies efforts to curtail the activities of Boko Haram insurgents.”

The district head also urged parents and guardians to always monitor the activities of their children and wards, to prevent them from associating with bad company and indulging in negative activities.

“The era of allowing our children to have any type of friend is over.’’

Angbazo said that children, as leaders of the tomorrow, should also be mindful of the friends they keep, adding that no society would wish to have irresponsible leaders.

Angbazo commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the proactive measures he had taken toward tackling insurgency in the North-East and other security challenges in the country.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the efforts of the President, to enable him to win the fight against insurgency and corruption as well as reposition the country.
