Former Interim National Chairman of All Progressive Congress, Chief Adebisi Akande wants Nigerians to imbibe Religious Tolerance to put an end to incessant killings in the country.

Chief Akande who stated this at an event in Ila Orangun attributed the menace bedeviling the Nation to lack of religious understanding and tolerance.

The Former Governor of Osun State harped on the importance of peaceful coexistence, saying the Nation cannot record any meaningful development in an atmosphere of rancor and acrimony.

He implored Nigerians to be united irrespective of political and religious differences.

Chief Akande urged politicians to desist from playing politics with religion, noting that unnecessary emphasis on religion and ethnicity rather than competency was seriously affecting governance in the country.

On his part, Osun State Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola said Nigerians must be more committed to the unity of the Nation, stressing that there is strength in unity.

He added that the present administration would continue to promote religious harmony in the state by giving religious organizations equal opportunity.
