Former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has called on Nigerians to continue to live in peace, irrespective of their religious beliefs.
Gowon made the call at the opening ceremony of the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Barewa Old Boys Association on Saturday, in Katsina.
Gowon, who is also the Chairman Board of Trustees of the Association, said Nigerians should continue to embrace peaceful coexistence for the development of the country.
“Muslims and Christians should use dialogue to find out what divides them and should unite themselves in the interest of peace.
“We need peace to move forward as a nation. People in position of authority should provide quality education for the pupils in public schools,” he said.
Gowon said that the provision of quality education to pupils would address problems of societal miscreants and hoodlums that pose a threat to the nation.
