Niger Delta Bishops visit Abuja national  mosque



The President of the Niger Delta Bishops and Ministers Forum, Dr. Julius Ediwe,  has said that God would hold religious leaders responsible for the spate of violence in the country.

He also admonished cleric to preach against religious extremism and sectarian violence in the country.
Ediwe said this when he led a delegation of Niger Delta Bishops on a courtesy call on the Executive Secretary, Abuja National Mosque Management Board, Alhaji Ibrahim Jega, on Friday in Abuja.

He said that the role of religious leaders in promoting peace and tolerance between Muslims and Christians cannot be overemphasized, adding that both Christians and Muslims should unite and pray for peace in the country.
Ediwe, who said that there could never be any meaningful development without peace, appealed to all Nigerians to live in peace with one another irrespective of their religious differences.

He also called on all Christian bodies to ensure that their followers shun all forms of violence, support the government of
President Muhammadu Buhari and pray for his quick recovery.

He said, “I want to say to Nigeria that the texture of violence that is going on in the country is the evidence of trouble coming to the country.

“I am calling on all Christian religious bodies that if anything happens to this country Nigeria with the texture of violence we are experiencing all over the places, God will hold us the religious leaders.”

Responding, Jega said the visit of the President of the Niger Delta Bishops and the Ministers Forums signified that Nigeria was one entity from the Almighty God.

The executive secretary also said that the presence of the Bishop at the mosque in the month of Ramadan signified solidarity ‘as it was not only Muslims that fast Christians also do fast.’

“Nigeria is a country comprising Muslims and Christians and so God wants us to be; Nobody can bring any crack in Nigeria as a country and we will continue as one indivisible nation under God,” he stated.
