Amosun receives ACF, urges unity

From NIYI OGUNGBOLA, Abeokuta
OGUN State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has advised various ethnic nationalities in the country to interface and dialogue with one another in order to move the nation forward.
Amosun gave the advice yesterday in Abeokuta while receiving in his office a delegation of Arewa Consultative Forum, led by its chairman, Alhaji Aliko Mohammed.
The governor said “we should strive to live together in peace and harmony irrespective of tribe and religion,” noting that “there is no religion in the world that preaches violence.”
He identified poverty as a major source of agitation and violence among the people, noting that “as government, we should be able to provide basic amenities for our people in order to reduce violence and crises in the country.”
Earlier in his address, the Chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Alhaji Aliko Musa Mohammed, said the aim of the visit to Ogun was to have a dialogue with their counterparts in Yorubaland, the Yoruba Unity Forum, on how best to move the country forward and strengthen its unity.
He said ACF was convinced that sister socio-cultural organizations like the Yoruba Unity Forum, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, South-south Peoples Assembly and others should interact with one another for purposes of building bridges and breaking down barriers standing in the way of better understanding, trust and confidence among all Nigerians.
He identified challenges facing Nigeria as endemic poverty, illiteracy, diseases and unemployment.
He said the ACF delegation would discuss some of the issues at length with their compatriots in the Yoruba Unity Forum and “see how we all can do our part and help move our country on the path of peace, unity and progress.”
