Sani Umar-Jabbi, the district head of Gagi in the Sokoto South local government area, has urged communities to organise more interfaith engagements.

The traditional ruler said such activities would enhance understanding and tolerance, thus strengthening peaceful coexistence amongst communities.

Mr Umar-Jabbi said this on Monday at a Ramadan fasting breakfast organised by Youths For Resolution and Peace Building Initiative, an NGO.

According to him, interfaith activities facilitate religious tolerance, peace, love, forgiveness and understanding among Nigerians to overcome present challenges.

He noted that he partnered the NGO in organising the event given its relevance and enjoined groups and associations to emulate gestures to curb crime in the society.

Mr Umar-Jabbi added that the move to join Muslims in breaking their Ramadan fasting breakfast aimed to strengthen the bond of friendship and promote unity among the different faith-based organisations in Sokoto.

He stressed that this would help tackle religious extremism and hatred among Sokoto residents.

According to him, joining Muslims in breaking Ramadan fast will not change their religion, and he encouraged other Christian leaders to find ways of strengthening interfaith activities.

“God created us to be in relationship with all human beings irrespective of tribe, culture, religion, colour, size, region and continent,” he said.
