Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has lamented about the worsening religious conflicts witnessed in the state.
The Kaduna state Governor who was represented at the foundation laying ceremony for the permanent site of the Kaduna Centre for the Study of Christian–Muslim Relations, held in Kaduna on Wednesday December 8 by his Deputy, Hadiza Balarabe, stated that "understanding and spiritual guidance in these perilous times cannot be overemphasized."
“Kaduna State has suffered too much from religious conflicts. The need for quality religious education, understanding and spiritual guidance in these perilous times cannot be overemphasized.
“It is very important that we continue to support and encourage centres like this in their effort to produce many persons that are properly educated about their own religion as well as the faith of others.
“This is a significant contribution to religious harmony and cultivating respect for our common humanity.”
