Group seeks peace between Christians, Moslems, gives free medical services
The Kingdom Evangelical Team World International Conference (KETWIC) has urged Nigerians to seek peace, unity and brotherly love irrespective of their religious beliefs and foster a society devoid of violence and killings as being experienced in the country.
As part of efforts to engender peace and harmonious co-existence between Christians and Moslems, the group, headed by Prince Izuka Ambrose, orgnanised free medical services and an empowerment programme for people of both faiths in Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) at the weekend.
Speaking at the inaugural programme, which was attended by Chairman of Ejigbo LCDA, Monsuru Bello, Chief Imam of Ejigbo, Sanni Mukaila Akanni, local council officials, the clergy and health officials, Izuka said it was time for all Nigerians to seek peace and brotherly love.
He said the free medical tests, check ups and drugs given to Christians and Moslems alike in collaboration with the Community Life and Maternal Health Empowerment Initiative (CLMHEI), was an attempt to unit people of both faiths aimed at a peaceful co-existence among them whether in the North, South, East or West.
Izuka explained that the killings by herdsmen and Boko Haram in the name of religion were too many, stressing that the country needed peace, brotherly love and kindness more than ever before.
“Irrespective of our religious persuasions, we have been taught to love and not hate, which should influence our attitude towards fellow citizens. Christianity teaches that without love, man is nothing just as Islam teaches its adherents to show kindness unto others and even strangers.
“If that is the case, then the killings in all parts of the country in the name of religion should not be because clearly, both religions abhor violence and the shedding of innocent blood. Nigerians must unite against the common enemy, which is politics, selfish ambition and greed,” he said.
