The House of Kaduna Family, a new Interfaith group, has pledged to work assiduously to ensure peace and security in Kaduna State.

A statement issued on Thursday by Priscilla Ankut, Executive Vice Chairman, Kaduna State Peace Commission, said members of House of Kaduna Family made the commitment at a meeting in Kaduna.

According to the statement, Dr Ahmad Gumi and Apostle Emmanuel Kure, who were elected co-chairmen to steer the affairs of the House, assured that they would contribute immensely to the search for peace and security in the state.

They reiterated that peace is not a privilege but a right for all people of the state regardless of faith, ethnicity and political affiliation.

The statement added that both Gumi and Kure explained that, the House of Kaduna Family would explore all avenues to ensure that they do not fail the people of the State.

They stressed that those who hide under religion to perpetrate crime and conflict, were ignorant of the teachings of their religions, as no religion preach violence.

“History is knocking at our door steps to see what we can achieve for the state, we cannot afford to fail. We are people of religion, people of God. So we shouldn’t fail”.

The co-chairmen added that Nigerians looked up to them to deploy wisdom and work together to make a difference in the peace making and peace building processes, to engender security and peaceful co-existence in the state.

NAN recalls that the House of Kaduna Family was inaugurated earlier in the month by Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai.

Its membership is drawn from the Christian and Muslim communities in the state.

The group is expected to complement the efforts of the state peace commission in their personal and institutional capacities as stakeholders and religious leaders, to engender peace and harmony in the state.
