Journalists for Peace (JFP), congratulates the entire Muslim Ummah for witnessing another celebration.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of the group, Comrade Andrew Fadason while felicitating them on this great occasion, he appreciated every Nigerian for their understanding despite the heat of the moment.
He called for more sacrifices for peace to reign as we pray and look forward to God’s intervention.

Journalists for Peace (JFP), is a platform that champions peace journalism.

The statement reads:

“JFP wishes to acknowledge the courage and sacrifices of Nigerians by bearing the effects of the present excruciating economic hardship, lingering insecurity and depression that has made life a nightmare to them. It is encouraging that Nigerians are still hopeful and peaceful despite daunting challenges.

“It is a thing of gratitude to appreciate God’s mercies for the continued relative peace being experienced in Kaduna State despite enormous challenges. This is a sign of good things to come.

The  group however calls on the government to as a matter of need put necessary machineries in place to bring about succour.

“We call on both the federal and state governments to reexamine some of their economic policies which have already failed after one year of trial and error.”

Appreciating the media, being the voice of the voiceless and vanguard for peace, the media he assured will continue to strive in fostering peaceful  and harmonious coexistence.

“JFP also appreciates the commendable role the Nigerian media is playing as a vanguard and watchdog of society as well as encouraging peaceful co-existence, harmony and unity through their reportage.

“By encouraging tolerance and patience, the media continues to be in the frontline championing the cause of democracy, equity and justice even at great risk.

The recent coming together of Governor Uba Sani and Senator Shehu Sani it described as a good omen for Kaduna state.

“Finally, JfP commends the mending of ways by Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State and Senator Shehu Sani. Nothing can better foster democracy and development at this trying time

than the coming together of these two political heavyweights to work together in the interest of the state. By setting their differences aside and working together, they will display leadership which will translate into peace and progress for the citizens of the state.
