Written by on February 7, 2022

Minister for Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on Sunday in Abuja, called for dialogue on matters of religious differences, rather than resorting to violence.

Adamu made the call while delivering his keynote address at the 2022 World Hijab Day Public Lecture, entitled: ‘The Hijab as a Metaphor of our National Aspirations.’organised by Coalition of Muslim Women of Nigeria.

Adama, represented by Deputy Director, Social Mobilisation, Universal Basic Education Commission, Mrs Sidikat Shomope, said that Nigeria’s constitution guaranteed freedom of religion for all citizens while also appealing to traditional, religious and community leaders to use their offices to douse tension and ensure peace, harmony and tolerance.

Earlier, a member of House of Representatives, Mrs Aishatu Dukku, assured that the National Assembly would ensure the passage of Religious Discrimination Prohibition Prevention Bill, 2021.
