By Patricia Uyeh,
Guess who was in Sokoto recently? It was legendary music star, TuFace Idibia, accompanied by his wife, Annie, “Orobo” crooner-Sound Sultan, Efe Omorogbe and others. They were on a mission to lead a two-day peace campaign against religious intolerance in Northern Nigeria.
The Peace Campaign was organised by TuFace Idibia Foundation ( A Million Voices For Peace) in collaboration with Voices Of Peace from the Sahara and the Justice, Development & Peace Commission (JDPC), Catholic Diocese of Sokoto.This is coming weeks after his conferment as Peace Ambassador for the Ooni of Ife’s Newest peace project.
Tuface had visited Vision FM for a brief interview with the media before proceeding to visit the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Most Rev.
Matthew Hassan Kukah with his delegation. He also met with both Christians and Muslims living in Sokoto. He spoke to an excited crowd on the many virtues of maintaining peace in the state especially through peaceful coexistence and religious tolerance.
TuFace had also promised to support the fight against Polio in the state after being decorated by Polio activist, Onyinye Ralph.
