Mallam-Nasir-El-RufaiLeaders of 29 different ethnic communities spread across five local government areas in Kaduna State have signed a peace accord.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State and his Plateau State counterpart, Simon Lalong, witnessed the signing of the accord in Kafanchan, Jema’a local government area of Kaduna.
The peace accord was at the instance of Center for Humanitarian Dialogue (CHD), ably supported by the Canadian Government.
In his remarks, Governor El-Rufai described the accord as a statement by communities in Southern Kaduna of their commitment to peace and their choice of dialogue and non-violence in resolving disputes.
“The Kaduna State Government warmly welcomes the Kafanchan Peace Declaration. I congratulate the communities and leaders of the selected local government areas of Sanga, Kachia, Kaura, Zangon Kataf and Jema’a for choosing dialogue over blows. I am glad to see 29 ethnic communities headed by 32 chairs, from these five LGAs, many of who have been involved in conflict in the past with and against each other, sitting here as one”, he said.
Mr. El-Rufai, however, said he was opposed to the perpetuation of ‘no-go zones’ in any community, and will instead promote integration in schools and residential areas.
“The government is committed to fairness, in promoting investments, jobs and infrastructure across the state”, he assured.
