The Curator, National Museum of Unity, Ibadan, Mr Amos Olorunnipa, on Tuesday urged Nigerians to be peaceful for the development of the country.

Olorunnipa made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan.

The curator said those in leadership positions should fear God and see peaceful co-existence as a priority in moving the country forward.

The curator said innocent Nigerians were suffering, while those displaced by natural and man-made disasters were passing through difficulties.

“We need peace to make people steadfast, strong and psychologically stable to be able to face challenges and contribute to the development to the nation.

“Youths should, therefore, be trained in making indigenous handicrafts; this will assist in creating employment and reducing criminal activities in the society,’’ he said.

Olorunnipa stressed the need to educate the youths on the concept of peace and peaceful co-existence to create a just and fair society.

Also speaking to NAN, the Programme Coordinator of the museum, Mr Moruff Sanusi, said statistics of visitors to the museum had shown that majority were youths.

“The museum considered it necessary to let outsiders see the concept of equity and fairness as an instrument for peaceful co-existence.’’

He, therefore, urged youths to be humble, tolerant and sincere, among others.

He said peaceful co-existence among youths would reduce criminal activities, bring about tranquility, improved economic performance, good health and prosperity to the nation
