I will never allow the negative preachings of the Boko Haram sect in my domain. All I want to assure all is that we are not in support of them, and I will do all in my power to expose them’’, he said.

Hausa leader calls for peaceful co-existence in Anambra

The Head of Hausa Community in Awka, Alhaji Garba Haruna, has called on Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of peaceful co-existence irrespective of tribe and religion.

Haruna told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Awka on Friday that it was necessary for religious leaders to preach peace both in churches and mosques for the nation to attain development.

“It is important that peace is preached in our places of worship among fellow Nigerians so that the country harnesses its full potentials.

“How come it is only in sports like football that you will see the true Nigerian spirit in display and other matters of national importance are being treated with ethnic and religious sentiments?”

Haruna stated that as head of Hausa community in Awka, he would not in any way condone the nefarious activities of Boko Haram sect nor harbour any of them.

“I will never allow the negative preachings of the Boko Haram sect in my domain. All I want to assure all is that we are not in support of them, and I will do all in my power to expose them’’, he said.

The leader thanked the government of Anambra State for accommodating all and sundry.

He expressed belief that Nigeria will come out of its economic and other challenges stronger.
