Gov. Nasir el-Rufai made the pledge while speaking at the Historic Unveiling of Public Apology Billboards at Samaru Roundabout in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of the state.

El-Rufai said the government’s decision to contribute to the reconstruction of worship centres was informed by the desire to consolidate on the peace building process in the area.

“The writing on the billboards suggests the Kaduna State that once existed without the religious and ethnic divides, which is the Kaduna of our dream,” he said.

The governor said, saying sorry was not a sign of weakness, but a mark of maturity and remorse and should be backed with pragmatic actions.

He, therefore, urged the people to support the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, the initiator of the peace process, to help bring about lasting peace in Southern Kaduna.
