President Bola Tinubu has called for a peaceful, just, and inclusive society, free from fear and violence.

The President, during his Iftar message on Friday, said nations need to work towards ensuring stability in fragile regions, saying such an ideal is practicable.

“It is time for us to bring peace and stability to the world. Stability and peace are attainable. We should all come together to promote peace in the world,” Tinubu told members of the Diplomatic Corps and Heads of International Organisations while hosting them at the State House, Abuja.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the President emphasised the values of tolerance and perseverance, noting their importance in fostering peace and stability worldwide.

The statement is titled, ‘President Tinubu appeals for peace in Africa and trouble spots around the globe.’

Tinubu said: “It is an honour for me to speak to you collectively and share with you the diverse culture that Nigeria embodies. Sharing this moment with you is a privilege for us.”

Reflecting on the essence of the season, President Tinubu remarked, “Ramadan is a period of self-denial, sharing, tolerance, and perseverance.

“It is a time for us to bring peace and stability to the world. I appreciate your coming and sharing of peace with us.”

He appealed to members of the Diplomatic Corps to extend their care and support to the needy and the vulnerable, noting their collective responsibility to promote peace and stability globally.

“Let us in our hearts care for the needy and those who have nothing.

Together, we can promote peace and stability in the world. It is what you need to convey to your various countries, that stability and peace are attainable.

“We should all come together to promote peace in the world. There will be no economic stability without peace in the world,” the president stated.

The High Commissioner of Cameroon and Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, Salaheddine Ibrahim, expressed gratitude for the generous invitation to share Iftar with President Tinubu.

He prayed for Nigeria’s blessings on the last days of Ramadan and wished President Tinubu fruitful stewardship for peace and prosperity in the country.

Commending the President for bringing renewed hope to Nigerians, Ibrahim assured him that Nigeria can rely on the international community as a veritable partner.

Earlier, at the State House mosque, Tinubu joined other Muslim faithful to participate in the closing of the Ramadan Tafsir.

He urged the Ummah to uphold the lessons of the Holy Month beyond the fasting season by living in peace and harmony with one another.

“I want to thank God Almighty that we started this Ramadan with the opening knowledge of Tafsir.

“I thank the Imams for their dedication, love, and commitment to the faith.

“My appeal is for them to continue to preach the sermon of goodwill,’’ Tinubu said.
