The scholars who spoke at a religious summit, tagged “Religion: The base for peaceful coexistence among the people of Taraba state”, and organised by the Yoruba Community Council  in the state, on Saturday, urged the organisers to develop a blueprint that would assist government at all levels to replicate the gesture.

A Muslim scholar with Taraba State University, Usman Bakari said “the government should make sure summits like this are encouraged to promote religious tolerance across board.”

On his part,  the state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Solomon Innocent, explained that religious tolerance  remains sacrosanct as enshrined in the National value and culture of the Nation.
