The Senator representing Aba South Senatorial district at the National Assembly, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has told President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerians need to live as brothers.[/perfectpullquote]
The lawmaker called on the Federal Government to institutionalise peace among the tribes and federating units of the country.
According to NAN, Abaribe made the appeal when members of Pearl Trade West Africa (PTWA), an NGO, visited in Abuja on Friday.
He said that government was the only body capable of restoring lasting peace among religious and ethnic groups in Nigeria.
He explained that government having the sole instruments of coercion was best positioned to chart the cause of peaceful coexistence, especially in a heterogeneous nation like Nigeria.
The Senator condemned the reckless use of hate speeches by some appointees of government, warning that it was capable of causing acrimony.
