The  Archbishop of Jos,  Most Rev Ignatius Kaigama, has  expressed optimism of an imminent end to the circle of violence in the country.

The Archbishop also lamented the unfortunate and unwarranted distress and sufferings caused by religious-political  and ethnic killings and destruction of properties in the North, stressing that it is unacceptable

“As the nation celebrates this centenary of or coming together as Nigerians, the citizens should be celebrating  unity , peace and development , and  not  lack of peace and under -development  caused by fighting and killing of one another in the name of crisis  even at  the slightest or no provocation,” Kaigama said in a statement in Jos on Tuesday.

Kaigama urged the government at all levels to initiate meaningful youth development programmes to take jobless youths out of the streets and reduce their penchant for violent acts.

He urged Nigeria to use the occasion of the centenary celebration of Nigeria’s coming together as a nation to forge the  spirit of love and forgiveness.

Kaigama, who said that he recently paid a solidarity visit to the Catholic Archdiocese of  Maiduguri to commiserate with them on the spate of violence in Borno state,  said that the extent of carnage and loss of lives was uncalled for.

The statement read in part, “We all know that the unfortunate loss of lives and property  is affecting all across ethnic , political and religious divide and so we must embrace one another in love and peace   as no nation develops without peace .
