South Kaduna crisis: El-Rufai inaugurates peace commission
« on: November 02, 2017, 10:17:54 PM »



The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, on Thursday, inaugurated the Kaduna State Peace Commission to find a lasting solution to the killings in the southern part of the state.

The governor had in September, 2017, appointed Worldwide Secretary-General of the Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Dr. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, as the chairman of the commission.

Other members of the commission include Priscilla Yachat Ankut who is to serve as the Executive Vice-Chairman/Chief Executive; Dr. Saleh Momale and Hajiya Khadijah Hawaja Gambo.

Inaugurating the commission on Thursday at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, el-Rufai said the move was a significant step towards rejecting the legacy of violent conflicts which had over the years defined the state.

He said that the ultimate guarantee of peace was the willingness of the people and communities to live in harmony with one another.

The governor noted that the commission, which was saddled with the responsibility of seeking a lasting peace in the state, had a lifespan of five years, urging the commission to also establish “peace committee” in the 23 local government areas of the state.

“We owe it to the victims to say never again, to try to establish mechanisms to proactively manage grievance and to insist that impunity shall have no place, that all persons and communities must employ only peaceful means to resolve differences,” el-Rufai said.

El-Rufai, who was visibly elated watching members of the commission take their oath of office/allegiance, thanked them for accepting to serve for peace to reign in the state.

He said, “Today is another significant step in our march towards rejecting the legacy of violent conflict that has marred our state for almost four decades. As strife tore apart the harmony that had made our state such a magnet for every Nigerian, the commissions of inquiry and committees established to study each instance of conflict began to recommend the setting up of a peace commission. Today, we answer this earnest plea by inaugurating the peace commission.

“This government has always argued that the ultimate guarantee of peace is the willingness of people and communities to live in harmony.

“This peace commission will help to strenghten the resolve of those that choose peace and harmony, trusting in the law and its institutions to resolve conflict and uphold rights.

“Violent conflict is no longer a route for elite figures to wrangle unmerited settlement, but that does not mean all conflict entrepreneurs will stop trying.

“Our people and communities have to be assisted to rise above the limitations of identity politics and its fixation on the things that divide. This government believes in a common humanity and upholds the right to citizenship of everyone who lives in the state.

“This is what can help build talent and unleash the energy of ordinary people to build a society that rewards hard work and merit.”

While responding on behalf of members, Idowu-Fearon  thanked the governor for the confidence reposed in them and promised him  that the commission would work assiduously to reduce violence and “work to ensure that differences are understood.”

He, however, urged the governor to uphold the value of impartiality in order for the commission to succeed.
