However, the willingness, ability and capacity to condone other traditions is the most important and beautiful way of building and expediting a strong and everlasting pinnacle of peace.

In a multilingual society like Nigeria, characterized by cultural diversity, tribal and religious differences, tolerance must be wholly welcomed in order to keep the tempo of peace and unity high above other things.

Conversely, our inability and unwillingness to subscribe to other peoples’ way of life, feelings and values create a sedated atmosphere for tension, unrest, callous, clashes, religious fanatics and more negativities.

Recall that earlier this year, a year two student of Shehu Shagari college of Education was set ablaze by some religious bigots due to intolerance and lack of respect for the other.

In order to erode bigotry, sentiment, hatred and narrow mindedness and understand other peoples’ way of life, behaviors as well as interpret them in a larger area like Nigeria, we must all subscribe to tolerance, condonement, and respect for other peoples’ belief, norms, and religion that differ from our own so as to have a good museum of peace..
