Discourse of Peace from Professor Angela Freeman Miri to Nigeria

On 25th of June 2018 Professor Angela Freeman Miri spoke to members from the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in order to influence politicians about their attitude towards diversity, helding a speech during the Ramadan breakfast in Lokoja, Kogi State.

She underlines how politicians sometimes use religion to divide and to engage wars to other people, instead of using religion for its real purpose, such as breaking down prejudices and setting up tolerance.

Christians and Muslims are brothers in Christ and Allah and the religious leaders show how the coexistence is the right pattern to live peacefully.
