Global Peace Foundation Nigeria’s One Family under God Campaign conducted peace festivals in Kaduna state on May 20 and 27 with the collaboration of local stakeholders to gather more than 8,000 people from different tribes and faiths. The event was covered by Channels Television, Nigeria’s TV Station of the Year for eleven years in a row.
In his interview with the news station, a Muslim leader discussed the important role every festival participant had in community engagement by practicing what they preach. “We have to live in peace; to love one another, to know who is your neighbor. We cannot do this without practicing it ourselves.”
Christian leaders agree. One such leader spoke out saying, “We have to celebrate our unity in diversity… God has meant for us to live together; celebrate and appreciate one another.”
