The Vicar-General of the Catholic Diocese of Kano, Rev. Fr. Peter Ebidero, says the Catholic Church will focus on preaching peace and the virtue of living in peace.
Ebidero made this known today in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano.

According to him, in spite of the current wave of violence in the country, the Church was determined to ensure that Nigerians reverted to the era of peaceful coexistence and brotherliness.

“With the resurgence of so much violence in our land, especially in the Northern part, one thing that the Church is trying to work on now is how to get people again to start living the way they were living before we got to where we are.

“That is brotherly living; living in charity; doing what the holy books of both religions say. The Church is trying to ask people now to go back to what their faiths tell them and stop politicising religion, stop politicising the way we live with one another”, he stated
Ebidero advised political leaders in the country to lead by example and to allow God to guide and direct them in taking decisions, stressing that the Catholic Church will continue to provide the environment conducive for excellent education and development of the human capital.
