Chief Kenny Martins, Grand Patron, Legacy Initiative International (LII) has stated the willingness of his group to partner with Nigerian Interfaith Action Association (NIFAA) and the Leadership of the two faith based organizations that have the majority of the Nigerians as their loyal members.
“On our part, we are willing and ready to partner with Nigerian Interfaith Action Association (NIFAA) and the Leadership of those two faith based organizations that have the majority of the Nigerians as their loyal members to continue in our advocacy for the leadership of these two religions to continue to interface with each other on a regular basis in this new spirit of cooperation and understanding of the influence their actions or inactions and bring about in the determination of what happens to our country socially, politically and economically,” Martins said.
Martins in a press statement said, “Examples abound of countries with multi-religious composition where the citizens have resorted to violent confrontation among each other leading to civil war because their Religious Leaders are busy preaching to their adherent how bad each other’s religion is.
“We urge both CAN and JNI to quickly publish the said peace agreement and further to translate it in major Nigerian languages so that it will get to the remotest areas of the country and be a guide to them on the need for peaceful co-existence with their neighbours with different religions and not be merely a news item that the adherents of the two great faith groups will soon forget and go back to their Holier Than Thou principles which has not generally led to peaceful co-existence among the people.,
