The Federal Government has renewed calls on all aggrieved groups in the country especially the Jama’atu Ahlul Sunnah Lid’dawati wal Jihad known as Boko Haram to cease fire and come forward for dialogue.

Speaking at a National Symposium, organised by Nasirul-Lahi-Fathi Society of Nigeria (NASFAT), Vice President Mohammed Namadi Sambo said the federal government is ready and willing to dialogue with the Boko Haram.

He said “government is ready to discuss. History has proven that even wars that are fought for decades, at the end, are only concluded by dialogue.”

Sambo laments activities of the group which has put the religion of Islam in bad light saying

“Islam is a religion of peace; it is a way of life. It cannot promote senseless killings and wanton destruction of property. I am not aware of any religion in the world that encourages unprovoked and relentless attack on other people.”

While commenting on the symposium with the theme “Islam and Peaceful Co-Existence in a Contemporary Multi Religious Society,” Sambo said the event will help highlight the essence of peaceful coexistence as enjoined in Islam.

He commended the organisers of the symposium, saying “it would help to educate the public on the Islamic view of peaceful co-existence and the concept of Jihad.”

Sambo said the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration is determined to provide adequate security for lives and property of all Nigerians and foreigners resident in the country.

He also assured that the activities of militant groups would not jeopardize government desire to propel Foreign Direct Investment (FDIs).

Earlier, the President of NASFAT, Alhaji Sheriff Yussuf, stated that the symposium was to dispel the belief that the terror attacks were to impose Islam or as a mark of hatred against people of other faiths and to also engender peaceful co-existence amongst the populace.

  5. it’s just clair that nigerians are separated from of people who really don’t want to leave together and that they are force to. the origin of all people in nigeria is not religious prblm it’s just the fact that each ethnic is an enemy to the other and everyone wants to be at the top and control others. we just hide behin our religions and be creating people to our nation that’s nonse.

  6. @salisu what u said is true the problem of Nigeria is not religious issue. it’s ethnic prob that everyone want to be the head. if we should walk on one path we will get to the Eldorado
