The Speaker, House Representatives Yakubu Dogara, has said that Nigeria must win the war against violence in order to attain full civilisation.

Dogara stated this on Friday in Jos at the annual cultural festival of Berom people of Plateau known as the “Nzem Berom”.

The Speaker who was the chairman of the event said that the violence confronting the country must be stopped at all cost.

Dogara noted that he had reflected long on the issues pertaining to the violence in the country, and discovered that most Nigerians dwell on errors, which serve as fuel for violence.

The speaker said that for instance, there was an error that tells us that a whole ethnic group could just be wiped out.

According to him, any person who utilises his senses should know that it is highly impossible to talk of just wiping out an ethnic group, except the God that created them decides to wipe them out Himself.
