The Co-chairman Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace in Abia State, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, says for Nigeria to achieve greatness there is the need for government to abolish the demand for state of origin from her citizens.
Bishop Onuoha stated this while interacting with Muslim community after their successful celebration of Eid el Fitr in Umuahia.
He noted that Nigerians should be accommodated and allowed to participate in the affairs of the people in any part of the country they have lived for many years without any discrimination.
According to the Methodist clergyman, it was through this process that peace, love and progress would exist among all.
The Chief Imam Muslim community, Abia state, Sheik Aliyu Ukiwo urged the people to shun all forms of religious bigotry, stating that it was an ill wind that blowed no good to the society.
Sheik Ukiwo called on fellow Muslims to always embrace peace, which according to him is a panacea for the development of any given society.
The Chairman Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Abia State Council, Apostle Emma Agomuo, commended the organizer of forum describing it as very apt.
He called on Nigerians to ensure that they observed always all the precautionary measures put in place by government in the fight against Coronavirus disease ravaging the country.
The forum attracted some religious leaders and Muslim faithful in the state.
