The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has described the Chairman and founder of Peace Revival and Reconciliation Foundation of Nigeria, Pastor Yohanna Buru as a pillar of unity whose stereotype is to always ensuring that people of different diverse live in peace and harmony.
The call for the need to reward a man like him for his relentless efforts towards promoting peaceful co-existence among the Kaduna residents especially at the grassroots was made by the NUJ Kaduna Council Chairman, Comrade Adamu Yusuf.
Speaking at a get together event organized for journalists, NGOs and traditional leaders at the NUJ, the chairman commended Pastor Buru’s gesture, saying that no meaningful development can be achieved in a society that is ravaged by rancour and disunity among the diverse groups.
“Buru deserves an award not only within the state but at the federal level to gear him up to do more in the promotion of peace especially among the youth who constitute the largest portion of Nigeria’s population.
“These are the kind of people we want in our society. People that promote peace among people, irrespective of their religion, ethnicity and tribe,” Adamu said.
Earlier, in his speech, a veteran journalist, Alh. Tajudeed Ajibade said: “Pastor Buru needs nothing but the prayers of everybody because of his mindset towards promoting peace especially in a state like Kaduna.
“I have seen several occasions where Pastor Buru organizes youth to promote peace among them”.
The Veteran journalist therefore, called on Nigerians to follow the footsteps of Pastor Buru in his spirit of promotion of peace and love for one another.
