The Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace (IDFP), has rolled out a code of conduct to guide religious groups and leaders, so as to enhance interfaith cooperation and peace building in the country.

The Co-Chairman of forum, Dr Yusuf Arrigassinu said on Wednesday in Abuja that the aim was to create an environment of mutual respect, cooperation, and harmony for a stronger and united Nigeria.

He urged religious leaders, interfaith community members, and all concerned citizens to embrace the principles outlined in the Code of Conduct.

Arrigassinu called for sound ethical and values-based decisions geared towards a more united and harmonious Nigeria.

“IDFP is thrilled to announce the launch of the Interfaith Code of Conduct, a momentous initiative that seeks to foster unity and peaceful coexistence among religious communities in Nigeria.

“The code serves as a guiding light, inspiring religious leaders to uphold shared values and promote a climate of understanding and harmony.

“This landmark initiative underscores IDFP’s unwavering commitment to fostering understanding, harmony, and cooperation through open dialogue among Nigeria’s diverse religious communities,” Arrigasiyyu said.

He urged the media to give the document wide publicity and for churches, mosques and schools to use it in promoting cooperation among Nigerians.

Also, Rev. John Hayab, the Co-coordinator, Central Coordinating Council of IDFP said that the forum remained committed to what will make a difference in the country.

He said that the forum was also committed to showing the people the right direction to follow as a country.

In his remarks, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, a former Co-chairman of the forum, urged governments at all levels to hold people responsible for their utterances.

He said that people should not be allowed to create conflicts in the country under the guise of religion or politics.

The cleric suggested that the code of conduct should be made available in schools, places of worship, hotels and other public places for all Nigerians to read and practice.

He said all Nigerians should be guided by the code, saying that for the country to develop, there was need for peace in the land.

Onuoha said that the document showed that Christians and Muslims in Nigeria can come together for progress, adding that Nigeria is not a theater of religious conflicts.

Also, Imam Fuad Adeyemi said that Christians and Muslims must emphasise the many similarities and common ggrounds between them.

“We do not have any other place except Nigeria and Christians and Muslims must come together to develop the country,” he added.

We Will Not Rest Until LP Takes Over Govt And Provide Quality Leadership – Abure

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Julius Abure has vowed to ensure the party takes over power in Nigeria and provide quality leadership.

He spoke while addressing journalists in Umuahia, Abia State, following a meeting with Governor Alex Otti and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of LP.

He said, “We will not rest until we are able to take over government and provide the people quality leadership that will work for the country.

“How do you reconcile a situation where we export crude oil only to import refined products at high costs. Nigeria’s problem is bad leadership, and once we get it right, every other thing will be fixed.

“Today, you can see that Nigeria is not moving as it should. A bag of rice sells for N120, 000 while minimum wage is N30,000. A tuber of yam that previously sold for N500 is now N1200.

“Life has become very difficult in Nigeria; security challenges are enormous; inflation is very high; unemployment is increasing, and people now find it increasingly difficult to feed. This is the reality in Nigeria today under APC Government.

“We will provide a leadership that will fight poverty and fight hunger; a leadership that will empathize with the people and liberate them.”
