By Tom Garba, Yola – Following the three months quit notice ultimatum issued by some Northern Youths to the Igbo community in the north, members of Mubi Emirate Council have sued for peace among all Nigerians, assuring of the safety of all Nigerians, including Igbo and Yoruba in their domains.
The Emir of Mubi, His Royal Highness Abubakar Isa-Ahmadu, while receiving a delegation from “Search for Common Ground,” a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in his palace commended the contributions of various NGOs particularly Search for Common Ground in its peace-building intervention which, according to him was been long awaited.
The royal father said the involvement of the traditional institutions in security matter is a sure way out of the current security challenges the nation is experiencing.
“We commend your organisation’s zeal in building peace. In Mubi here, we do not discriminate against our Igbo and Yoruba brothers. We believe in peace and coexistence of this great nation,” he said.
A member of Mubi traditional council and District Head of Gyela, Sali Bello who spoke on behalf of others reassured of the safety of the Igbo, Yoruba and other Nigerians in their domain.
“We thanked God for the live of our Royal Father. He always preach peace. He told us we should not discriminate against other Nigerians in our domain in the name of religion and tribe. I can tell you without mincing words that Mubi is safe to all Nigerians both Igbo and Yoruba”
