The Agora of Zuba chiefdom in Gwagwalada area council of Abuja, His Royal Highness (HRH) Alhaji Mohammed Bello Umar, has called for peaceful co-existence among his subjects irrespective of their religious, tribal,l, and ethnic background.
Alhaji Bello, who made the call shortly after he joined other Muslims to observe the two Raka’at prayers to mark the Eid-el Kabir at Zuba Eid prayer ground on Saturday, also called on religious, community leaders especially the clerics to pray for the country to overcome the present security challenge.
He said security issues cannot be left in the hands of the government alone, saying it is a collective responsibility of every individual to make their input towards security matter.
He stressed the need for village chiefs, community leaders,s and district heads across his chiefdom to continue to be vigilant and keep their eyes on strange people that come to their domains.
He said they should ensure they work closely with relevant security agencies in the area by giving them any useful information whenever an emergency arises.
The traditional ruler, however, urged parents not to relent in their efforts towards sending their children to education, saying education is the bedrock of any society across the world.
“And we will also not rest on our oars about our mothers, as they should ensure that the children are sent to school to acquire education because that’s the bedrock of any society,” he said.
