OrderPaperToday – As part of measures to boost communal harmony and peaceful inter-religious co-existence, the Sokoto State Government will sustain the policy of non-discriminatory fees in public schools.

Governor Aminu Tambuwal said the policy has helped integration and learning and has boosted education in the state.

The governor spoke when he received the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh in Sokoto.

Tambuwal told his visitor that Christians have lived in peace and harmony in the state for centuries and that government appreciates their contributions to the socio-economic development of the state of the Caliphate.

Tambuwal said all Nigerians, irrespective of religion and ethnic affiliation, are welcome to Sokoto to contribute to the educational advancement of the state.

In his remarks, Okoh said Nigeria can learn a lot from Sokoto’s peaceful disposition in order to ensure rapid development of the country.

He said even though there were ‘one or two issues’ with conflicts in Sokoto in the past, that has not affected the overall peaceful disposition of the state.

He commended Sokoto state government for its efforts to promote harmony among diverse religious and ethnic groups in the state.

While urging all Nigerians to take the issue of protection of environment seriously, Okoh said the dangers posed by desertification is real and should be accorded the attention it deserves.
