Mr Peter Averik, Chairman of Jema’a Local Government Area, has enjoined Muslim Faithful in the area to always embrace peace as they marked this year’s Eid-el-kabir celebration.

Averik made the appeal during a Sallah homage to the Emir of Jema’a, Alhaji Muhammadu Isa Muhammadu at his palace in Kafanchan.

He called on the people in the area to be accommodative and tolerant of one another, irrespective of religious or ethnic affiliations

He lamented the recent attack on Zikpak community on July 24 and urged people to respect the curfew imposed by government to avert a further breakdown of law and order in the local government.

Averik commended the Royal Father for the unwavering support accorded the council since it came on board two years ago.

In his remark, Isa-Muhammadu assured the chairman of his Emirate’s support towards peace building initiatives in the area.

Isa-Muhammadu regretted the insecurity in Southern Kaduna, adding that it was unfortunate that the crisis bedeviling the region was being coated with religious colouration.

“Almost every issue around here is given a religious colouration. This is most unfortunate.

“I call on people in the area to shun all tendencies that could lead to a breach of the peace,” he added.

According to him, the cost of peace was far much less than the cost of violence as no meaningful development could take place without peace.
