Emir of Borgu Kingdom, Barrister Muhammad Sani Haliru Dantoro,”Kitoro1V” has called on traditional rulers in Nigeria to close ranks and work towards ensuring peace and harmony among their subjects.
The emir who gave the charge in an interview with newsmen at the weekend in Abuja, urged the traditional rulers to unite their people and resist those bent at causing division among them.
According to him, Nigeria needs everyone in formal and informal positions of leadership to promote peaceful coexistence and understanding.
He noted that there are “many merchants of hate and division” whose stock in trade is to cause division and crisis among the people. Adding that they seek to have their bread buttered by the suffering and destruction that violence brings.
“They promote a persistent victim mentality, pushing a narrative that relegates and diminishes people and inclines them to base conduct,” he added.
He said peace is paramount to the socio-economic development of a country. He said as such, no society could develop without peace and stability.
The emir while commending the federal government’s commitment to restoring peace and stability in the Northeast, prayed for peace and prosperity of the country.
“As custodians of peace, culture and tradition, the traditional institutions in Nigeria would continue to support policies and programmes of the government for the prosperity of the country,” he said.
